Elizabeth Buchan’s beloved bestsellers, Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman and The Good Wife Strikes Back, have made her an icon of upmarket women’s fiction. Taking her characteristic wit and emotional resonance to a new level, her latest novel focuses on two lives separated by forty years of history. In 1959, a forty-something married mother finds herself immersed in a surprisingly passionate affair with a younger man, while in the present, a professional woman faces a daunting choice between her blossoming career and her husband’s desire for children. Mirroring each other in surprising ways, these twin stories offer a deliciously readable funny and moving look at the battle of the sexes across time—and deliver another smart, nuanced novel for Elizabeth Buchan’s growing fans.

Everything she thought she wanted
Wow! Very readable ,especially in the last 3/4. The author leaves a lot of unanswered questions but clearly leaves it up to the reader to determine who Barbara's baby belongs to. I have a hunch, but as Barbara says "It's her weight to bear." I won't reveal anymore but I enjoyed the way Barbara's voice ends. Gosh I wish the author would've revealed the baby's father! It would have been a hot book rather than just a chic fic. All and all the book was satisfying and I learned a little on how to camouflage areas in the body that need a little fashion 101.
