Is twenty-something Lindsay Adams living the wrong life? Her struggle to answer this existential question plays out in this lyrical and funny modern twist on a classic tale.
Lindsay thought she knew how she should live her life – as one of the intelligentsia in the city of her birth -- but in the wake of 9/11 and her grandmother’s death, she suffers panic attacks. Deciding to drop out of graduate school in Washington, DC, and with a sense of urgency she follows her mother, a recent transplant herself, to the mountains of West Virginia. There she awakens, like Sleeping Beauty, to new possibilities.
Lindsay hasn’t quite broken up with her urbane, literate boyfriend, Juniper, but she begins having a secret affair with a sheltered, engaging, country-boy, Elliot. When she travels back to DC to sort through her grandmother’s belongings, she mulls over her many options while she wrestles with this central conundrum: What kind of life would feel as if it was genuinely her own? A life of urban sophistication on which she has already embarked with Juniper? Or the surprising, even shocking, choice to retreat to a life of simple, country pleasures embodied by her new romance with Elliot?
Oddly enough, she has no idea what to choose.
