For the past fourteen years, Eve Adams has worked part-time while raising her two children and emotionally supporting her sculptor husband, Eric, through his early fame and success. Now, at forty-two, she suddenly finds herself with a growing career of her owna private nutritionist practice and a book dealeven as Erics career sinks deeper into the slump it slipped into a few years ago.
After a dinner at a local restaurant to celebrate Eves success, Eric drives the babysitter home and, simply, doesnt come back. Eve must now shift the family in possibly irreparable ways, forcing her to realize that competence in one area of life doesnt always keep things from unraveling in another.
Gone is an outstanding novel about change and about redefining, in middle age, everything from ones marriage to ones career to ones role as a best friend, parent, and spouse. It is a novel about passion and forgiveness and knowing when to let something go and when to fight to hold on to it, about learning to say goodbyebut, if youre lucky, not forever.
