From the cover: Emma is a modern, marvelous woman. Her husband (who she loves) is locked in mortal combat with middle age -- and his comrade in arms is very young and very female. One of her sons (who she loves) is finding out how hard it is to lose his innocence -- so he's getting a little help from his mother's best friend. And her lover (who she. . . likes) is off hang-gliding with her husband -- and Emma is a little unsure who she hopes has a happy landing. But where is her heart? Somewhere off in the starry, dreamy twilight of Hollywood it is waiting for everyone to come home -- because Emma has never forgotten the special effects of love.
