A wondrously unpretentious novel that offers a funny, free-spirited feminine take on roads taken and not taken.
When Lanie Coates and her family uproot themselves from Houston to Cambridge, Massachusetts, so that husband Peter can pursue his musical aspirations, this mother of three slides into a giant-sized midlife crisis. The crush of three young sons and the absence of a support system leave her reeling, doubting even the authenticity of her marriage. Suddenly, without notice, an old camera found a storage closet offers not just release but also exciting new vistas. Novelist Marisa de los Santos said of the book, "I laughed, winced in recognition, and cheered wholeheartedly (sometimes out loud) for Lanie as she struggles to learn how to love everyone enough and still give part of herself to herself."
