After nearly 50 years of marriage, Joseph Weissman decides he has fallen in love with a new woman and would like to divorce Betty. In denial, Betty retreats to a beach cottage in Westport with her two grown daughters who should have lives much more together than they do.
At middle age, Annie and Miranda feel like teens again. They’re navigating messy love lives and dealing with bickering parents. It seems you never grow too old to desire parental comfort and surprise in the love department.
This book felt much like a Jonathan Trooper novel so if you like his work, you’ll definitely enjoy it. Also, apparently this is a modern version of Sense and Sensibility…which I now think it’s time to read.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
