Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Tyler's latest, about a middle-aged woman who runs away from her husband and children and takes on a new life, spent 17 weeks on PW's bestseller list. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Delia Grinstead begins a new life in Tyler's (Saint Maybe, Audio Reviews, LJ 5/15/93) latest by simply walking away from her family's vacation at the beach. She spends the next year reinventing herself, no longer the doctor's faithful and timid wife, the dutiful mother of three, the practical sister. Finally, she discovers a life of her own; for the first time she is independent, away from the home and practice her husband inherited from her father. The detachment the author puts Delia through is common Tyler territory: at times surprising, at times perfectly mundane as Delia re-creates a life and an identity in almost idyllic Bayborough, Maryland. C.J. Critt gives her usual skillful narration. Tyler fans will appreciate the familiar twists on the commonplace and the author's endearing characters. For most public libraries.‘Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo, N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
