(Blue Rider Press; March 2012)
It's a warm summer night and three women are on the lam: Tracee, a runaway bride and kleptomaniac; Lana, an audacious beauty and a recovering alcoholic; and Rita, the wife of a holy-roller minister who is desperate to escape her marriage and discover whether she has a mind of her own. Everything changes when their car breaks down and they meet Marcel, a lion who ultimately helps these women confront their pasts in this story of friendship, courage and love. The warmth and sparkling wit of Delia Ephron - the author, essayist, journalist, screenwriter and playwright who brought us You've Got Mail, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Hanging Up, Michael and Love, Loss, and What I Wore - is once more on display in this unforgettable novel.
