Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Emily Aulenbach is 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.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-06-15)

Frustrated with her life, 32-year-old Manhattan lawyer Emily Aulenbach impulsively decides to take a personal and professional leave of absence, much to the dismay of her husband, boss, sister, parents, and friends. She gets in the car and drives, eventually reaching the New Hampshire town where she spent one college summer. Although this town is loaded with good and bad memories, she feels it's the only place where she can figure out what kind of life and work she wants to pursue. A former lover, an animal refuge, and a woman in need of legal advice are distractions that help Emily figure it all out.

Verdict: Best-selling author Delinsky's (Not My Daughter) latest novel features a scenario many readers likely fantasize about, but it also has a protagonist whose actions may induce mixed feelings. While Emily puts her happiness first and escapes the life she no longer wants, her selfishness affects others, especially her husband. Ultimately, this thought-provoking book will be popular summer reading.
