Overview

"Nora Heller is a woman we can really care about."—Chicago Tribune.

At forty-one, sassy, savvy magazine publisher Nora Heller should have known better than to fall into bed with a man her matchmaking mother picked out for her. Because, with one bad marriage behind her, past failures came back to haunt her . . . and she couldn't forget what had happened to her beautiful sister Susan and the handsome doctor she adored. Nora believed that living in a family of women had taught her everything about the ways men can shatter dreams. Still, she had gone looking for love, found it, and lost it. Now a second chance meant facing the truth about her family, her career, and her heart.

"It's easy to tell good novels from bad ones. In the good ones, the protagonist learns something, and so do we. Looking for love is a good one. Trust me."—Joyce Slater, The Atlanta Journal & Constitution.

"Begs to be made it a television miniseries. . .The mother-daughter relationships evoke a warm, satisfying nostalgia."—Booklist

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Nora Heller, divorced, fortyish, attractive, well-adjusted, is the publisher and editor-in-chief of AH! , formerly American Homemaker magazine, in Ellen Feldman's predictable third novel, after Conjugal Rights. Riding the Amtrak on the way to visit her mother in Florida, Nora meets Max Miller, a divorced, fortyish, attractive, well-adjusted, successful lawyer, and although she sleeps with him in the novel's first paragraph, she resists falling in love because he's the son of her mother's friend, thus part of a conventional lifestyle Nora disdains. Soon it's revealed that Max is a really nice guy and he really likes trains--they're even sort of a hobby--and unlike Nora, he's not a workaholic, so the question remains: Can Nora make the leap to a ``normal'' life with Max? The novel lacks dramatic tension and Feldman's standard, tired prose is sprinkled a little too generously with cliches. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; first serial to Cosmopolitan; Literary Guild selection.
