Overview

This captivating story offers an insider's eye into a world of publishing, interior design, fashion and food.

As Elie Sands turns 50, she seems to have it all - a fabulous job as editor of an interior design magazine, a handsome, rich husband and two lovely daughters. She lives in a Central Park co-op and owns a home in the Hamptons. Her close friends are: Syd - the stunning 60 year-old who lives in the penthouse and follows her instincts without a care for the opinions of others, and Michael - the gay designer who is fastidious, flamboyant and wildly entertaining.

Life in the middle-aged lane seems to be gliding along just fine for these three Manhattanites, until bad news arrives. How they cope with their individual challenges and reassess their future is the essence of this novel, told in a witty and insightful manner.

    Every woman who has ever wondered about life should read this book

    I should say wondered and wandered because this book has it all. Funny, well written, inspiring and touching it has all the elements of a bestseller. Well done Anne

    Great Read!

    This book is a great read! The characters are so well developed that you can close your eyes and imagine them in your head. I learned so much about art, food, friendship and the importance of having a good "sense of morality." I look forward to what has yet to be written by this author and will share this book with family and friends who are "women of a certain age" as well as "silver and sage." Well done, Anne!

    Five Star!

    This was a great read! I'm not Jewish but this didn't matter. A very well written book and it gives you some very good insights into the Jewish life styles. You will love the characters and laugh and cry with them!

    Dull

    This book is poorly written in a simplistic, monotonous "he said, she said" style. I chose not to finish it.

    Loved it. Ya just got to read it.

    I thoroughly loved the book. It was an easy read. Had some funny stuff and teared up a couple times. You never know if you can achieve your dreams if you don't try. I would recommend the book.

    A good read.

    I liked the book. Crazy about it? Ehh! It was a bit to long for the outcome that was somewhat predictable. Funny,real to life and a Happy Ending. Who doesn't like a Happy Ending?

    Large Book with Large Laughs

    If you want something to read that will boost your spirits and give you the "I can do it" attitude, this is it. Make sure you have plenty of time to read this as it is almost 1000 pages of fun. It is worth every minute of the read. The price is more than right. I have spent much more and not been as satisfied. Read, Smile and Feel Good About Yourself. This is a winner.

    Borrr...ing

    This book went on and on and on about absolutely nothing! The two biggest obstacles for the character in this book was what to do after she quit her job (don't worry she's rich of course) and who to sleep with after the divorce. I guess the reader should care because the main characters are middle aged and Jewish. This book read like blah blah blah. I'm glad I paid little to nothing for this waste of shelf space.

    Decent Read

    I liked this book well enough, but found it very heavy on the Jewish background. It was a little overkill for me, but the story itself was interesting enough to keep me reading.

    Loved this one

    Would have been even nicer if the people were not wealthy. Most people can't have this kind of life. Liked it even so.

    It's ok

    I just could not get in to this story. I lent it to my sister (who reads much faster than I do) so she could tell me the ending. I stopped reading halfway through.

    A little "wordy..."

    ...but a really fun read. I loved the ascertiveness of the main character and how believable of a character she was in this book. Worth reading.
