The middle ages: a novel
From the acclaimed author of Crossing Brooklyn Ferry comes a sexy, witty urban love story for the ages.
For architect and single mom Jane Larson, life has become a numbing routine. Each morning she ascends from the subway to face the same job she's had for eighteen years: designing chain banks, grocery stores, and dry cleaners. In the evening she goes home to her teenage daughters who are increasingly critical of her. She's lost all interest in relationships and love, and her whole life feels frozen. But when she is suddenly let go from her firm, disaster turns into opportunity. She is forced to muster the courage to pursue her career dreams. And she begins an exhilarating, long-distance correspondence with Jack, her college flame.
Before long, her intimate conversations with Jack turn passionate, and Jane discovers that life after forty can be thrilling after all. But will the distance between Jack and Jane keep them apart? Can happily-ever-after be a reality for people who've done it all before?

When you least expect it, life can turn you around. Take forty-something Jane Larson. Although she views her situation with wry humor, her life feels frozen. An architect, she's had the same job for eighteen years, designing chain banks, grocery stores, and dry cleaners instead of the beautiful houses she craves to create. Living in Brooklyn with her difficult teenage daughters, she's lost all hope for the possibility of love or excitement.
Then she's let go from her firm and is suddenly free to pursue her career dreams. And when she contacts her old college flame, an exhilarating long-distance correspondence with him reawakens that part of her she's long ignored. Does Jane have the courage to gamble with her heart? Can happily-ever-after be a reality for people who've done it all before?
With warmth and humor Fields explores the territory of middle age, proving that it's never too late to reinvent your life, or to take the risks that bring us the pleasures we all deserve.
