Two things happened to Rosemary that early summer; she won $30,000 playing Keno at the Hakoah Club and she fell in love with a woman much younger than herself. Thus, laden with luck, she entered her fifty-first year. . . . When middle-aged, academic Rosemary meets twenty-seven-year-old Billie--a woman with a tough bike and an even tougher attitude--she goes weak at the knees. Yet when Billie speeds off on a soul-searching bender through the Australian outback, Rosemary is left to ponder love and longevity, and weather a few adventures of her own. Cooped up for the summer with the eccentric Daphne--who is busy transforming her body into a tattooed biography of her mad mother's life--Rosemary unwittingly winds up with a leading role in a lesbian porn flick, loses her car to a shears-wielding murderer, and still finds time to compost her garden and miss Billie to no end. Yet as each woman's path twists through a hilarious comedy of manners and mishaps, one fact remains: relationships lie in the sometimes capable--sometimes careless--hands of coincidence.

Review: Passing RemarksUser Review - Nicole - Goodreads
The story had some interesting characters and ideas, but the author tried to do too much. Some subplots didn't have complete, or convincing, resolutions. Some didn't have any at all. A bit confusing as to what was happening at times. Read full review
