Publisher's Summary

Critic Reviews

"National Book Award-winner Gilchrist...has blessed her followers with another entertaining work of fiction. It presents a complex cast, not the least of these being the central character for whom the novel is named. At fiftysomething, Sarah is a high-powered editor at Time magazine and a successful novelist. At the novel's beginning, a childhood friend has died, and an old love - the husband of that friend - has reentered her life. What seems like an easy opportunity to rekindle an old flame is more akin to mixing fire and gasoline." (Library Journal)
