Marilyn Grimes is a wife, mother, sister, and daughter. Today she’s decided to be something different: herself. First, she has to find out who that is.
“TERRY MCMILLAN KEEPS IT REAL.…easily her most accomplished tale…by turns laugh-out-loud funny and gut-punch painful. McMillan has painted a convincing portrait of the kind of woman who can say yes to everyone but herself.”—Boston Herald
“VINTAGE MCMILLAN…a very human story with large doses of friendship, humor, family, and imperfect relationships.”—The Dallas Morning News
“FUNNY, SAD, AND…FEISTY. [A] frank, no-holds-barred, humorous look at African-American midlife.”—The Seattle Times
“[MCMILLAN] HAS…A CUTTING WIT, a knack for capturing the way real people think and speak, a fearless willingness to engage complex, painful issues, and an unerring instinct for fashioning characters that enchant readers’ imaginations.”—The Washington Post
“WITH HUMOR AND HEART AND HUMANITY, MCMILLAN SPEAKS TO WOMEN ON THE VERGE.” —The Hartford Courant
