Maria’s boss Ursula bullies her; Dirk asks questions about her age and handsome sensitive IT nerd Dominic wants a relationship. Her 20-year-old daughter Julia wants to move in with her boyfriend. Friendship with Josephine is strained. Now Maria has no job, two boyfriends, one testy BFF and the prospect of one empty nest. Maria must buck up to confront workplace bullying, unemployment, faltering friendship and the quest for meaning and love. Christina Debi’s debut novel, in the style of Liane Moriarty, is an amusing and intelligent look at the modern woman to reveal the essential humanity in us all.
