From #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr comes the story of four friends determined to find their stride
Gerri can't decide what's more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair them. Always the anchor for friends and her children, she realizes it's time to look carefully at herself. The journey is more than revealing—it's transforming.
Andy has come to believe that a lasting love is out of reach. When she finds herself attracted to a man without any of the qualities that usually appeal to her, she questions everything she thought she wanted in life.
Sonja's New Age pursuit of balance is shattered when her husband walks out. There's no herbal tonic or cleansing ritual that can restore her serenity—or her sanity.
Miraculously, it's BJ, the newcomer to Mill Valley, who steps into their circle and changes everything. The woman with dark secrets opens up to her neighbors, and together they get back on track, stronger as individuals and unfaltering as friends.

The prolific Carr (A Summer in Sonoma) explores the implosion of the marriages of four women with painful secrets living in the same neighborhood, in this juicy deliberation on getting your groove back amid domestic chaos, hormonal imbalance, and crushing depression. Within a matter of months, the rock-solid marriage of Gerri, a social worker, and her husband Phil, a public defender, cracks under the weight of an old infidelity; divorcee Andy takes on Bob, an unlikely lover, who teaches her about the beauty of "wanting what you have"; New Age dilettante Sonja loses her mind but finds her balance; and mysterious B.J. moves into the neighborhood hoping to hide a hideous past. Carr expertly juggles the drama of these richly drawn female characters and the men and kids who, improbably, sweetly adore them. The women are instantly recognizable outwardly comfortable and secure even as they privately battle demons. It's here that the author lingers for a closer look at domestic abuse, gay children, spouses, mental illness, lagging libido, extramarital affairs, grief, and parenting troubled teens. It's tricky terrain, but Carr leads with confidence, and the path, though familiar, is fresh and inviting.
