I really enjoyed this novel; Delinsky definitely delivers. I think the description lacks substance because this is a (dated) story (pre-internet, pre-cell), on literally losing a child, adultery, growing older, plastic surgery, kids going off to college, and dating by placing ads for love in magazines. One thing I noticed about Delinsky: She often writes about adultery as if everyone does it and it's Okay if the person has a reason to indulge.
