Paris Armstrong never saw it coming. With two grown children and a lovely home in Connecticut, Paris was happy with her marriage, her family, her life. So when her husband of 24 years said they needed to talk, Paris couldn't imagine what he was about to say.
"I want a divorce," Peter told her. Just like that, the husband she adored had dumped her for a younger woman, leaving Paris to pick up the pieces of a shattered life. Then the excruciating attempts by well-meaning friends to "fix her up." Worse yet, she still loved Peter. Drastic measures were called for. It was time to move - as far away as possible.
Heading west to San Francisco, Paris discovers a world full of men too young, too old, too married, or too good to be true, and with her dating game score hovering between disappointing and disastrous - and her daughter now engaged to a man Paris' age - Paris determines that romance is not in her future. That's when her small circle of offbeat, loving friends becomes more important than ever before. And Paris discovers that that the secret of happiness is finding the gifts in life's unexpected twists and turns - turning despair into freedom and loss into joy.
