just finished reading...

A coming of age story for middle aged women! Ginny is an empty-nester whose daughter, Jem, has just gone off to university. Ginny has to reinvent herself and her life now that Jem's starting off on her own. What I like about Mansell's books are the secondary characters' stories weaving in and out of the main thread. There isn't so much going on that it's tough to keep track. There are moments of tenderness and heartbreak as well as some laugh out loud funny moments. And I wanted all the characters to be my friend. Well, maybe not Gavin.

A chick-lit, rom-com, perfect for lounging around and reading.

This is going to be a definite must read for me. I cry every time I think about my daughter going to college in 5 years.
