Diana Moore, a thirty-something professional in New York City, is brooding over rumors about her ex-lovers beautiful new girlfriend, when the unimaginable happens: a terrible car accident in which her entire family is killed. Seeking refuge from her well-meaning friends, Diana heads out of the city and ends up in the Pine Barrens, an oasis of simple living in New Jersey where cranberry bogs abound. There, in a place where no one knows her history, Diana is free to take a hard look at her life and to begin to explore avenues of change and renewal.

About the Author:

Kathleen DeMarco is a screenplay writer and producing partner to John Leguizamo at Lower East Side Films. She attended the University of Pennsylvania (College of Arts & Sciences and the Wharton School of Business). She has written for HBO 's Original Films, and on TV movies for NBC, ABC, and CBS. Her screenplays include: My Pseudo Life (with John Leguizamo), and Ivy League Stripper. She lives in New York City.

From Publishers Weekly:

Dominated by dialogue in the form of verbal jousting, film producer and television writer DeMarco's first novel reads a lot like a screenplay for the film it's already slated to become, optioned by Miramax Films. At 33, Diana Moore, good-looking, bold and sassy, is the marketing manager for a successful Internet company. She still broods, however, about the "Monster" who dumped her three years ago and now dates a younger woman. She blames herself. As she tells her therapist, "No wonder I have no boyfriend; I say awful things." But her life is otherwise enviable: she has loving parents, a brother she cherishes and a hefty 401(k) until a devastating accident destroys everything that makes her life worth living. Well-meaning friends and sympathetic co-workers become smothering. She quits her job, leaves the city and ends up in rural New Jersey, her Volvo disabled after a collision with an elderly woman riding a motorcycle who turns out to be a major cranberry farm owner named Rosie. Rosie and her granddaughter, Louisa, take Diana in for a few days, and Diana vacillates between enjoyment of a jolly situation and her familiar self-criticism. Meantime, Louisa's former-but-not-forgotten boyfriend finds Diana attractive. She proves receptive, infuriating Louisa; and an older man named Sam turns up with a business proposal, assuming that Diana recognizes him he was best man at her parents' wedding. This is a quick and easy evening's read, but Diana's self-absorption doesn't inspire much empathy. In the film treatment, perhaps Julia Roberts could make this heroine lovable, but it'll be a stretch. Agent, Laura Dail. 11-city author tour; rights sold in Germany, Holland and the U.K.
