From the author: "Navigating the hazards of sex and marriage.

"Sonia, thrown by a broken mid-life marriage, flees to Sweden to stay with her long-time Swedish friend Inge. Forty-nine, a professional woman in Washington, D.C., she's run the gamut from open relationships to an attempt at a normal marriage with Ben. Ben's got a restraining order against her after she broke into her ex-house, yet he wants her back. Her life's imploding and she's failed to get love, sex, and respectability lined up.

"Inge's had her own take on 'normal,' having been a Swedish trophy wife in America. Inge's brother Ammon, a Sami/Laplander, sparks Sonia's bruised heart with tormenting temptation.

"By chance, Sonia brings an answer to a family secret."
