View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The bestselling author of Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman returns with a delightfully wise and witty novel of two women constrained by choice. One has too little, the other too much.

In the summer of 1959, 40-year-old Barbara Beeching, the married mother of two grown-up children, embarks on an unexpected, tender, and surprisingly passionate affair with a much younger man. Forty years later, 35-year-old Siena Grant, a successful television fashion consultant, faces a difficult question: Should she agree to have the baby her husband yearns for?

Decades separate Barbara and Siena, yet each is at a crossroads, and each is wondering, "Where does happiness lie?" They are destined never to meet, yet their stories are woven together and their intimate, inner lives are linked.

Fans of Elizabeth Buchan know that no one is better at capturing the complexities of marriage at middle age. Each of her novels is eagerly awaited by women who revere her as a literary goddess. Her latest—savvy, sophisticated, irresistibly entertaining—does not disappoint.
