A tender and wonderfully insightful story of friendship, love, heartbreak and renewal, played out in the lives of three unforgettable women, from an extraordinary - and unexpected - debut novelist: "The King of Guytalk," ESPN's Mike Greenberg
Three women are about to find their lives intertwined in ways none of them could ever have imagined ...
BROOKE has been happily married to Scott, her college sweetheart, for 15 years. Even after the twins and the C-section, the dog poop and the cat litter, the stomach viruses and the coffee breath, Scott still always manages to wink at her at just the right moments. That is why, for her beloved, romantic, successful husband's fortieth birthday, she is giving him naked pictures. Of his wife.
SAMANTHA's newlyweded bliss is shattered when she finds shocking evidence of infidelity on her husband's computer. She has been married for two days. She won't be for long.
KATHERINE works eighteen hours a day for the man who irreparably damaged her heart when she was 24. She has a duplex on Park Avenue, a driver, a chef, an assistant, and a killer house in Southampton, and she bought it all herself. And if she has to see Phillip every day, so what?
Brooke, Samantha, and Katherine don't know each other, but their stories are about to intertwine in a way none of the three could anticipate. And all three are about to discover the power of friendship to conquer adversity, the satisfaction of unexpected delights, the incredible difference one human being can have on other lives - and that they have all they could ask for, as long as they have each other.

"The shared adversity these women face is portrayed realistically and tenderly, although a storybook ending ties up the individual stories a little too neatly." - Booklist
"Greenberg's promising first effort, told partly in the form of message board postings, develops the lead characters well enough for its predictably feel-good conclusion to feel justified." - Publishers Weekly
"Any automatic sympathy conferred by illness will be mitigated, for most readers, by how little we've come to care for these superficial and uber-privileged characters." - Kirkus
