I enjoyed this book. The main character, Noreen "Nora", works in a large athletic shoe corpoation, until it is bought out and she is encouraged by Michael ( a member of the buy out team), to accept a buy out of her own. She gets 18 months of income and lots of perks to quit. After she leaves, she finds out that not having a job is hard since she was a workaholic.

She meets up with her neighbors, Rosie and Tess, who work from home and the form the Wildwater Walking Club. They are able to help each other while walking their 10000 steps every day. Tess is ticked off with the community's ban on drying laundry outside. Rosie struggles to keep the family business, The Lavendar Farm, going. Nora just keeps struggling with not having a job and what she wants to do in life. Each lady supports the other and helps sort out the problems each is facing.

My favorite part of the book is when, as a protest of the air drying ban, the three of them plan and carry out a little civil disobedience when the post protest signs all the over the community's commons and dump soap in the fountain.
