“An addictive fictional saga in which a jilted wife goes to the mat to save her marriage and her morale.”              — O Magazine, “10 Titles to Pick Up Now”

“As in her first book, Huntley is a keen social observer, empathetic and biting at once… [A] gripping psychological portrait of a woman at a personal crossroads. A haunting story of betrayal and forgiveness that packs an unexpectedly emotional punch.”                                                                                                                                            — Kirkus

“An engrossing portrait of female friendship, Huntley’s sophomore novel explores the risks and rewards of finding an unexpected soul mate. Huntley lets the idyllic Hawaiian setting wash over the reader, the volcanoes and starry skies the perfect background for Nancy’s self-discovery. Readers who enjoyed Camille Pagán’s Life and Other Near-Death Experiences and the works of Meg Wolitzer will savor the slow burn of this expressive and electric novel.”                                                                                                                                                                                        — Stephanie Turza, Booklist (Starred Review)
