Three women of different generations gather at a house in Summer Hill, Virginia to discuss their marriages and look at how they'd do things differently if they could do it all over again. Olivia is in her sixties and recently married her first love after forty years apart. Her first marriage was long and unhappy and she is thrilled to finally be with the man she's always loved. Kathy is in her forties and is married to a handsome, successful businessman. She is a great business partner for him but he is passionately in love with a woman from his past. Kathy wants to stand on her own in business and regrets ever marrying her husband. Elise is in her twenties and is married to the man her wealthy parents chose for her. She has tried everything to get her husband to pay attention to her but she is certain he is having an affair. When she discovers the truth--that he has a pregnant mistress--her life falls apart. All three women share their regrets, their wishes and their dreams and find themselves with the opportunity to start again. All three discover what happens if their wishes really could come true.

"Narrator Susan Bennett maintains the fine line between realism and magical realism in Jude Deveraux's romantic novel. Three women of different ages--Olivia, Kathy, and Elise--meet in a Virginia summerhouse to discuss their failed romances. Separation, indifference, and cruelty evoke regret and longing in the women. Bennett speaks with the savoir faire of a seasoned narrator. She brings experience to Olivia's recollections, sardonic understanding to Kathy's, and a growing self-awareness to Elise's, always matching Deveraux's tone of yarn-spinning enchantment. It's a treat to hear a romance that speaks to various life experiences, and Bennett bridges the age span with humor. This is a sexy romance to share with grown-up daughters, mothers, and grandmothers, equal parts charming and insightful. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
