Thirty-nine year old Liz Adams looks like she has everything: handsome husband, beautiful home, job she loves as head of a college nursing program. She also has a 10-years-younger lover who dresses as a chickpea while running his Mideastern food stand. Soon she has an unplanned pregnancy and has been unjustly fired. She learns that being passive is not as satisfying as taking action. This story flies along...no surprises, but very affecting characters.
