Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Single mother Amy Byler grabs the chance to enjoy a child-free summer in New York City, but then a crisis forces her to make some difficult choices.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1
    Amy wasn't expecting to run into her husband at the drugstore. Not after he left her and their two children, moved to Hong Kong, and started his life over again. But now he's back in the picture, working remotely and excited to rebuild a relationship with his children. Amy agrees to a weeklong summer visit, which goes well enough to turn into a longer stay. With an unexpected amount of child-free time on her hands, Amy heads to New York for a conference and some much-needed downtime. She enjoys catching up with friends and revisiting old haunts, but a new romantic interest leaves her feeling revitalized, energized, and deeply confused. In the easygoing, character-driven style of Liane Moriarty and Barbara Davis, this story of an underappreciated single mom with more freedom than she's entirely comfortable with mixes the self-assured highs with the guiltiest lows of modern motherhood. Harms' (The Matchmakers of Minnow Bay, 2016) warm and witty novel will tickle fans of Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2012) and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine (2017).
