From the beloved New York Times-bestselling author of Home Safe, The Last Time I Saw You, and The Year of Pleasures, thirteen wonderful stories about women breaking free and following their hearts--by doing, saying, eating whatever they really want.
Every now and then, right in the middle of an ordinary day, a woman commits a small act of liberation. What would you do, if you were going to break out? Go AWOL from Weight Watchers? Start a dating service for people over fifty? Seek comfort in the face of aging, look for love in the midst of loss, find friendship in the most surprising of places? These wonderful stories answer the question: What might you do, if nobody was looking?
