Summary
Heartfelt, funny, and all-together human novel about the best mistakes a person can make Jonathan and Rosie have been together so long they finish each other's sentences'so when he (finally) proposes and asks her to move across the country with him, everyone is happily surprised. But when things suddenly unravel, Rosie sends Jonathan packing and moves back home with Soapie, the irascible, opinionated grandmother who raised her. Only now she has to figure out how to fire Soapie's very unsuitable caregiver, a gardener named Tony who lets her drink martinis, smoke, and cheat at Scrabble. It's a temporary break, of course'until Rosie realizes she's accidentally pregnant at 44, completely unequipped for motherhood, and worse, may be falling in love with the sentimental, troubled Tony, whose life is even more muddled than hers. It's not until Rosie learns the truth about her mother's tragic story that she wonders if sometimes you have to let go of your fears, trusting that the big-hearted, messy life that awaits you may just be the one you were meant to live
Summary
After separating from her boyfriend of nearly 10 years, Rosie, pregnant at 43, faces the decline of her beloved grandmother and the loneliness she's always carried with her until she discovers that sometimes you have to let go of everything you love in order to find the life you were meant for
