‘If you’ve ever been in a relationship with another person, if you’ve ever had a family, you need to read this book’ Ann Patchett

Polly Solo-Miller Demarest is the perfect flower of the Solo-Miller family.

The Solo-Millers have everything: looks, brains, money, a strong, fortified sense of clan, and branches in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York, as well as London, just like a banking house.

And Polly, along with Henry Demarest, a big handsome lawyer, has a beautiful household of her own and two nice, sturdy children.

But one day – completely unexpectedly – she finds herself entangled in a sweet yet painful love affair with a painter, who loves her in the specific and allows her to cry freely in front of him. Suddenly all the values she has lived by are called into question.

From Laurie Colwin, the ultimate chronicler of the human heart, comes a novel about a woman tired of being taken for granted – and a reminder that family, like happiness, can take many forms.
