From the back cover:
After nineteen years of being the perfect wife to an ambitious politician, Fanny Savage is restless. Tired of merely keeping quiet and looking good at public engagements, Fanny remembers the career she abandoned and the life she left behind as a successful partner in her father's Italian wine business. She has devoted two decades to being the Good Wife, Was it worth it, after all? Could it be time for a trip back to Italy -- to the pleasures of sun, wine, and food? Could it be time for . . . a change?


My two cents:
A decent read and a great topic (midlife crises from the woman's perspective) -- but not one of my favorites. Part of the problem, I think, is that I just couldn't stand one of the characters (the sister-in-law) and what our heroine let her get away with. Plus, I didn't really care for the ending. It's difficult to discuss without giving it away, but let's just say I expected more change and more strength from the heroine. All in all, however, I enjoyed it and will probably try other books by Elizabeth Buchan.
