Summary:
Why on earth, after all you've been through, all you've survived, all you've achieved, why do you want to get married?' Rose Woodrowe has just got engaged to Tyler Masson - a wonderful, sensitive man who is head-over-heels in love with her. The only problem? This isn't the first time for either of them, and their five grown-up children have strong opinions on the matter . . . Like Rose's daughter, Laura, who remembers her parents' painful divorce and doesn't want to see her mother hurt again. Or the twins, Emmy and Nat, who simply don't trust the man their mother has fallen for. Then there's Tyler's children: Seth, too busy with his San Francisco sourdough bakery to get to know his father's new partner; and Mallory, the aspiring actress, who is still wrestling with the issues of her own childhood. Who to listen to? Who to please? Rose and Tyler are determined to get it right this time, but in trying to make everyone happy, can they ever be happy themselves?

  Publishers Weekly Review

In Trollope's lighthearted contemporary, a divorced 64-year-old grandmother discovers love again, but her family isn't so thrilled. Rose Woodrowe is enjoying a pleasant if uneventful life, living in a mews house in London and working as a medical translator. Tyler Masson, a widower who knew Rose from a tennis camp where they met as teenagers, becomes reacquainted with her at a London play and proposes marriage four months later. Though Rose is in love with Tyler, she is very close to her adult children and concerned about how they will react to her wish to remarry. Laura, a physician, wants to see her mother happy but is wary of how quickly Tyler is moving. Nat and Emmy, Rose's twins, share those concerns and dislike that someone is taking their mother's attention away from them. The complexity of familial relationships breathes realism and intensity into this novel, especially when Tyler's actress daughter, Mallory, meets Rose's family and befriends Emmy. Trollope (City of Friends) creates a seamless story complete with flawed, believable characters whose relatable lives will appeal to readers of all ages. © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
