A nice, quick read. I loved all the characters. Jane Young has to "escape" South Florida and start over again, alone and with a baby on the way. She moves to a small town in Maine and thrives there with her daughter and her own business, until the past comes back to haunt her.

Fun romp of a book that addresses women’s rights in a fresh way. Aviva Grossman is an upper class girl who, as a college intern, has an affair with a married congressman. His reputation is not harmed, but hers is annihilated. And there it begins. We are the situation from multiple perspectives and grow too l the varied characters. Even the congressman’s wife. Creative and light, I wished that it had presented a clear ending message though.
