really liked it

After thirty-three years of marriage, Marcy Hammer’s husband, Harvey, has left her for a younger woman. The woman happens be a model who works at the lingerie corporation he owns.  Marcy, who is in her mid fifties, is facing every woman’s worst nightmare.

Marcy is in a state of disbelief that her husband has left her. She is not ready to share the news with her family. She also fears idle talk and humiliation from the community she lives in.  Faced with a difficult situation, Marcy struggles to figure out how to move forward in her life.

Reaching out to her children and closest friends, Marcy slowly begins to accept that her new life might not include Harvey.  She is coming to the realization that rebuilding and making changes life will come with an emotional price tag. She begins to ponder broader question such as future romantic possibilities and selling the “family” home.

This book is very easy to read and provides a realistic story of a woman facing a life do-over. I enjoyed much of the sarcasm throughout the book and found Marcy’s journey well depicted. This book is about a woman’s ability to absorb a period of bad karma and with some work emerge as an improved person on the other side.

This is a debut novel by the author.
