Tilly is 32, and trying for a baby with her beloved husband, while working at a great job and living in the town she grew up in. It's a wonderful life, except it isn't. A fortune teller at the school fair - who is a former friend of Tilly's - gives her a gift, the gift of clarity. And suddenly Tilly is having "flash-forwards" to events that haven't happened yet, but are not things that figure in her perfecdt life.

Chick lit, or hen lit, call it what you will, this is a woman's novel about growing up and making choices. It's the third novel I've read in a row set in a smallish American town, where who you were in High school defines the rest of your life - or how you see yourself maybe.

It's an enjoyable read, with a predicatable ending but still enough revelations and a few loose ends to keep the reader interested.
