Samantha Hoffman

St. Martin's Griffin

Do you ever think about your first love, the one you thought you couldn’t live without? Libby Carson does, and when she receives a marriage proposal she turns to SearchForClassmates.com to reach out to her high-school boyfriend, Patrick … just for fun. But fun soon turns to flirtation and Libby, startled to feel the same stirrings of passion she felt at seventeen, wonders if she’s having a mid-life crisis. Is it possible, she wonders, to feel so giddy and carefree at fifty? Is it possible to sustain it? Events take a turn when Libby is faced with not one, but two offers of marriage. There’s no getting around it now—Libby must take stock of her life and everyone in it, to answer for herself the question that everyone has been asking her—What more could you wish for?

Samantha Hoffman vividly renders a tale of angst, terror and triumph inherent in the process of finding true love, no matter the age.
