Condición del libro: Very Good
Sophie Lieb, a forty-six-year-old beautiful divorcee, surveys the unhappy circumstances of her life—a controlling ex-husband, and married children who fear her straying from home. Her disappointment in herself for her failures, and her fear of a future that promises more of the same, deepen her despair.
At this critical moment, Sophie meets Derek Borghese, a renowned actor returning to the Broadway stage, and is swept up in a passionate affair. But Derek has demons of his own to conquer in his battle to maintain his integrity as an actor against what seems to him the talent-suffocating commercialism of the Broadway stage.
Sophie's relationship with Derek turns sour under the relentless pressure of her ex-husband to keep her locked in place, and her children's objections to her affair with Derek threaten to split the family apart. Sophie, caught between her need to fulfill her own longings and her desperate desire to hold her family together, begins to question whether a love affair is the answer to her dilemma.From the Author:
Sophie, like so many women before her, needs to search her soul before answering the ultimate question: How far must she go to establish her independence?
The forties are one of the most difficult decades women face.Looking back, they see the final blossoming of their youth. But looking ahead, they see the "Pause" rushing at them with increasing speed and, they believe, the waiting limbo from which there is no escape. Earlier dreams of Prince Charming galloping into their lives now seem foolish. But those dreams at least prevented the imaginative vigor of their lives from draining away. They may be forgiven, therefore, if they grasp at love even though it may only complicate their lives.
