Hello, I'm an eBook!
ATTENTION: This item is an eBook. It can be read on iOS, Android, MAC and PC's with a supported eReader. It is not a physical book. eBooks are available via download immediately after you've checked out.
Miriam Swanson is thoroughly provoked and she doesn't mind letting you know. Twenty years ago her husband Charles, a powerful attorney with one of the last remaining white shoe law firms in New York, dumped her for a younger woman nearly half her age. Obviously it happens all the time and it's not exactly news, but what's fascinating is to watch Miriam evolve from pathetic to spectacular.
Perfectly proper Miriam's great metamorphosis results from the arrival of a little redneck school teacher, Liz, from Nowhere, Alabama. Liz is Miriam's tenant (along with Kevin, a 50 something gay man who is Miriam's best friend). Liz is everything that Miriam is not: young and thin. They constantly clash until the one night when they realize that they are both dating the same man, the same married man. They attack the Lothario and become friends.
Soon after she and her new "family" become involved in a crime that leads them back to Charleston. Miriam is confronted with her past when an invitation to her son's wedding comes in the mail. Liz and Kevin help her lose weight, change her look, and get a face lift. She is ready to wow her ex-husband when circumstances arise that force her to reevaluated her choices. Is Charles worth it or do her friends, her new family, need her more?
