Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061092819, Mass Market Paperback)Emily, Kay and Celeste have been best friends forever. Their daughters are close, too, but all the girls are off to college now, and the mothers must redefine themselves as women. Emily, once half of the perfect marriage, hardly knows her workaholic husband Doug anymore. What she wants so badly from him is being offered by her new neighbor, a widower with heart, soul, and grit. Kay, a dedicated teacher, still loves her job, but her husband John is making unfamiliar demands of her, demands that confuse her and make her wonder about their future together. Celeste, long-divorced, is ecstatic with freedom. She searches for the perfect man, but when her daughter is endangered, her electric new life looks terribly dim. As the most precious parts they've hidden for years suddenly demand to be heard, these three women must learn to love themselves. Barbara Delinsky expertly interweaves these three stories in a glorious work that is at once moving, romantic, and real.

With their three daughters off to their freshman year of college, Emily, Kay, and Celeste each deal with their new-found freedom in a different way. Kay continues her teaching; Celeste decides to explore new male relationships; and Emily tries to revive her failing marriage. However, a near fatal accident involving her husband changes Kay's life. Celeste's new love interest is not what he appears, and Emily uncovers the truth about her husband's lost interest in their marriage, while at the same time is drawn to a recent widower who has rented the apartment above her garage. All three grow and change during this year of turmoil but remain friends as their lives take on new directions.
