The lives of middle-aged women struggling with jobs and family, friendship and romance, are captured to perfection in this collection of humorous and touching stories set in the contemporary Southwest.

The heroines, most of them over forty, include single moms, aging hippies, women newly awakening to the possibility of love, and women confronting their own mortality.
