A moving story of family life with a cast of well-developed characters headed by a flawed but likable protagonist named Isabel. We meet Isabel as she navigates her mid-life marked with losses small and large and wrestles with the problematic notion that “every happy moment is already on the way to becoming nostalgia”. Author Lauren Fox is a gifted writer who pens her novels with wit and keen insight into relationships.
“Isabel (and Fox) has such an offbeat way of looking at things that you’ll eagerly keep reading just to see what she’s going to say next”. –Kirkus Reviews
“As Fox deconstructs the myth of perfect womanhood, her humor and humanity remind us that love’s the only lifeboat through grief.” —People Magazine Book of the Week
