Publisher's Summary

Maribeth Klein is so busy taking care of her husband and twins that she doesn't even realise that she has had a heart attack.

Afterwards, surprised to discover that her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her, Maribeth does the unthinkable - she packs a bag and leaves. Far from the demands of family and career, she is finally able to own up to the secrets she has been keeping from herself and those she loves.

Critic Reviews

"For all that the subject is emotional and dark, this ultimate forbidden maternal fantasy is written with a light, refreshingly satirical touch - a triumph." ( Daily Mail)
"Forman depicts Maribeth's complicated situation and her thoroughly satisfying arc, leaving readers feeling as though they've really accompanied Maribeth on her journey." ( Publishers Weekly)
