In this witty, deeply honest tale of married life, New York Times bestselling author Jane Green delves into the heart of the holidays-and the winter of one woman's discontent... Just when she'd sworn off men for good, Sarah Evans met Eddie. Sarah was a magazine editor, living in Manhattan, and loving her life-except for the heartbreaks. A successful real estate developer, Eddie was a breath of fresh air, a meeting of minds-and bodies. Soon came wedded bliss, baby number one-and the proverbial move to the suburbs... You just sit there like a slob while I do all the work. Nine years later, this is increasingly what goes through Sarah's mind when she looks at Evan, propped in front of the TV with a beer, ignoring their two children. The truth is, she misses her old life. She misses the old Eddie. She can't help wondering if she'd be happier alone...? When Eddie's job sends him to Chicago indefinitely, Sarah shocks him by suggesting a trial separation. But she knows it's just a precursor to divorce-even if Eddie chooses to think of it as a "vacation." Yet a lot can change-on both sides-as time goes by. And once Christmas arrives, Sarah and Eddie might re-discover gifts they'd forgotten they had...
