Publisher Description

New York Times Bestseller

From the author of Not My Daughter comes the story of Emily Aulenbach, an idealistic young lawyer who once dreamed of representing victims of corporate abuse. Instead, she now spends her days in a cubicle arguing victims of corporate greed out of their rightful claims. She no longer connects with much in her life, period, with the exception of three things—her computer, her BlackBerry, and her watch. One day, she snaps. Without telling anyone where she is going, she heads north to Bell Valley, New Hampshire, the small town where she spent a life-altering summer during her college years. There, she will set out to forge new relationships with lovers, long-lost friends and the person she once wanted to become.

"A first-rate storyteller who creates believable, sympathetic characters who seem as familiar as your neighbors."

Escape

This story has universal appeal in that I'm sure we have all had the desire to rewrite a part of our lives when unhappy with the direction we are headed. What made it even more appealing is that the main character, Emily began the escape on her own, but valued the part of her life that was good; enough to fight for a change she could live with. Although she could have simply had a fling with Jude and then returned to the life which she found stifling, she was wise enough to think it through and make her husband see things through showing him the way. An excellent read which rose above the mundane, predictable outcome of modern romance.
