Marcy’s husband, Harvey – the owner of the Bountiful Bosom bra company – announces he is leaving her after 33 years of marriage for a much younger lingerie model. So Marcy, an empty-nester, has to strike out on her own – with the help of her tell-it-like-it-is friend Dana, who is on to her third marriage. This story delves into the trials Marcy faces as she contemplates life alone – finding paid work as well as dealing with her mother’s ill-health and her daughter’s own affair with a married man. This was more of a character-driven, rather than plot-driven, novel. Marcy has a wry sense of humour but perhaps it works best for American audiences. One for those looking for a more mature heroine.
