In her luminous new novel, Barbara Delinsky explores every woman''s desire to abandon the endless obligations of work and marriage--and the idea that the most passionate romance can be found with the person you know best. Emil
Annotation:
The follow-up to Barbara Delinsky's best-selling NOT MY DAUGHTER is the touching story of Emily Aulenbach, a thirty-ish New York City lawyer trapped in a corporate job that doesn't jibe with her values and a stagnant marriage to an ambitious fellow lawyer. One day, she spontaneously leaves her lush Manhattan co-op with a hastily packed bag, setting out for nowhere in particular, and winds up in a small New England town. The novel follows her though process as she confronts her past and attempts to makes peace with the decisions that created her unhappy current life.
Author Bio
Barbara Delinsky
A native of Newton, Massachusetts, Barbara Delinsky attended Tufts University, where she met her husband, Stephen Delinsky, a lawyer who once served as chief of staff for the attorney general. After earning a master's degree in sociology at Boston University, she began working at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. She also worked as a reporter and photographer before taking time off to give birth to her son, Eric, the first of her three children. Working closely with the breast cancer advisory committee at Massachusetts General Hospital, Delinsky became committed to its goal of raising awareness of the disease, which took her mother's life at the age of 45 when she was only 8 years old.

Delinsky began her writing career at the age of 35 after reading a newspaper article on female genre writers. Feeling she could successfully join their ranks, Delinsky wrote her first romance, "Hills of Eden", in only three and a half weeks. She continued this torrid pace for the next 18 years, during which she penned 66 novels, many of them bestsellers. She began with a formulaic approach, constructing 10 chapters of 20 pages each, though she has since gone on to expand this structure. Her other interests include hiking, crossword puzzles, reading and, when possible, vacationing with her husband.

Praise

"Delinsky keeps the story moving with some nice twists on a familiar plot, rich characterizations, and real-feeling dilemmas that will keep readers hooked." 05/16/2011
