Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling author of The Elegant Gathering of White Snows comes a poignant, outrageous, refreshingly liberating story about one woman whose life takes an unexpected turn...

Meg Fratano has just witnessed the unthinkable: her husband of twenty-seven years making love to another woman. In her bed. And all Meg wanted to do was watch. Quietly, secretly, watch. Then she realized her life would never be the same.

Meg isn't sure what she wants, but she knows it's not what she had. After almost three decades of marriage and two children, she has finally awakened to how unhappy she is.

Now, with the help of friends old and new, and even her teenage daughter — a former brat who has blossomed into a startlingly wise young woman — Meg just might break through the chains of everyone's expectations for her and find the strength to take the first step on her own path. To strip away a lifetime of inhibitions. To dance naked at the edge of dawn...

Review:

"[A]t least Radish's stock characters know how to have a good time on their way to matriarchal Nirvana. Likely to appeal to the red hat crowd, but may annoy those with low tolerance for New Age blather." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

When Meg Fratano stumbles upon her husband in bed with another woman, the experience triggers a determination to transform her life, to leave her family to pursue her own dreams and desires in order to find happiness for herself. Reader's Guide available. Original. 55,000 first printing.
