Get ready to cheer for Rose Lloyd, a woman of young middle-age who proves that starting over doesn’t have an age limit. After twenty-five years spent juggling husband, career, and kids with admirable success, Rose suddenly finds both her marriage and her career in unexpected ruin. Forced to begin a new life, she is at first terrified, then energized, by her newfound freedom—it’s amazing what prolonged reflection, a little weight loss, a new slant on independence, and some Parisian lingerie will do for the psyche!

Even though I got lost a few times in the flashbacks, I enjoyed this book. A nice journey through the humiliating loss and betrayal that Rose feels when her husband leaves her for a younger woman. I've never been there and don't anticipate ever being there, but it reminded me how important it is to ...

1.0 Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman
The best thing about this book is the title. Middle-aged woman is abandoned by her husband for m-a-w's (very youthful) assistant. I missed the revenge of the title. Don't waste your time.
