Description
In Julia Glass's follow-up to her National Book Award winner Three Junes (with a return of bookseller Fenno McLeod), Greenie Duquette lavishes her energy on her Greenwich Village bakery and her young son George. Her husband Alan seems to have surrendered to a midlife depression, while her restaurateur cohort Walter is nursing a broken heart. Then the governor of New Mexico tastes Greenie's coconut cake at Walter's restaurant, and woos her away to be his chef, leaving Alan in New York. Her impulsive choice is one of a dozen story threads Glass weaves in this exploration of the chances we take in love and marriage, which are knotted together by the attacks of 9/11.

"In her second rich, subtle novel, Glass reveals how the past impinges on the present, and how small incidents of fate and chance determine the future.... Glass brings the same assured narrative drive and engaging prose to this exploration of the quest for love and its tests—absence, doubt, infidelity, guilt and loss."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
