Author: Maya Sacher
Genre: Women’s Fiction, Book Club Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Family Drama
Publication Date: March 1, 2018


Elizabeth, a dentist in her late thirties, doesn’t have it all. She is coping with her husband’s coma, her unresolved grief over her mother’s death, her mixed feelings toward her stepmother, dissatisfaction with her job.

Unexpectedly, she falls in love with a musical zoo curator from Australia. He is divorced, he has a dog and a tween daughter who doesn’t want Elizabeth around.

When her husband wakes up, Elizabeth’s life is thrown into chaos. The choice before her is unbearable because she doesn’t want to hurt anyone, yet she wants to do the right thing, whatever that is. The expectations of her family and her men don’t make it any easier. What should she do? Can she have her cookie and eat it too?



Excerpt:

As they stepped onto the sidewalk, Aidan gripped her hand as if not to let it slip out. “I love you, Ellie. You know that, don’t you?”

How many times had she wished she could give up a second, a day, a year, half her life just to once more see Mother’s beautiful smile, feel her comforting embrace? But not now. Now she wouldn’t give up a single moment, even if that would bring back Mother. How could she give this up? This joy Aidan pulled to the surface so effortlessly. This energy which enveloped her as if it could lift her off the ground. Had she ever lived to the fullest? Was this how it felt? And all because of him? Those cutest of words?

She stopped to look at him. “I know.”

Aidan cupped her cheek and kissed her, all the while holding her hand. She couldn’t stop smiling, her teeth colliding with his, grazing his lips. She wished she could capture them in a photograph, one she could go back to when her memory failed her. But her mind would have to do. Her crazy happy mind.
