McMillan Palgrave
Isabel and Neil are old marrieds. Suburban old marrieds, at that. While the routine that's as comfortable as an old shoe seems to suit Neil just fine, Isabel--professional wife and mother and one the nicest women in the line at school pick-up--is restless. Tired of being just "Neil's wife" or "Michael's mommy", she takes a part-time job working for the disorganized but devastatingly attractive Patrick, only to find herself drawn to him. Despite telling herself to think of her husband and children, Isabel finds herself doing the unthinkable, and plunging into a world of conflicting loyalties, desires and responsibilities.

Isabel and Neil are old marrieds. Suburban old marrieds at that. While the routine that's as comfortable as an old shoe seems to suit Neil just fine, Isabel - professional wife and mother, and one of the nicest women in the line at school pickup - is restless. Tired of being just "Neil's wife" or "Michael's mommy," she takes a part-time job working for the disorganized, but devastatingly attractive Patrick, only to find herself drawn to him. Despite telling herself to think of her husband and children, Isabel finds herself doing the unthinkable, and plunging into a world of conflicting loyalties, desires, and responsibilities.
A little not-so-innocent romance can be fun, but it also raises urgent questions for Isabel: Can a mommy who's having an affair with her boss still be a good mommy? Can she overlook some very unattractive things she's discovered about her new lover? Can she leave everything - and everyone - behind?
