"New Yorker Joanna Matthews is rapidly approaching 60 and desperate for a change. The last remotely daring thing she did--jumping into an unconventional marriage with her best friend Brian--happened 20 years ago. Now, their life's comfortable, if routine. Joanna craves more and begins pursuing her long-deferred dream: owning and running a bed & breakfast. She's captivated by Cape May, New Jersey, America's Oldest Seaside Resort. On the bus south, she meets a novelist, and is thunderstruck when she falls passionately in love for the first time. How will her late awakening affect the future and her three-decade relationship with Brian?" -- from web page.
