At forty-nine, Alana Sanders was at the stage where life should be easier. She had put her artistic passion on hold when she married, raised two children, and kept a happy home.
Now that the kids are grown and out of the house, it’s Alana’s time at last. However, she and her husband find themselves faced with a new and sad dilemma—figuring out who the stranger is who sits across the dining room table. The questions and doubt begin when Alana retraces the decisions she has made that brought her to this point.
As her life unravels around her, she meets Toni O’Hara, a Chicago fire inspector. Through her humor and compassion, Toni helps Alana come to terms with her life, her culpability in her failed marriage, and the most wonderful realization of all—love, at last.
