When Lucy discovered that her charming, cheating husband was dying, she came home, opened up his little black book, and decided she wasn't going through this alone. After all, Artie's sweethearts were there for the good times--is it fair that Lucy should have to manage the hard times herself? In this wise, wickedly funny new novel, Lucy dials up the women in Artie's black book and invites them for one last visit. The last thing she expects is that any will actually show up. But one by one, they do show up: The one who hates him. The one who owes her life to him. The one he turned into a lesbian, and the one he taught to dance. And among them is a visitor with the strangest story of all: the young man who may or may not be Artie's long-lost son. For Lucy, the jaw-dropping procession of women is an education in the man she can't forgive and couldn't leave. And as the women find themselves sharing secrets and sharing tears, they start to discover kindred spirits--and even something that's a lot like family. But Lucy knows one thing for certain: the biggest surprises are yet to comeā€¦. Full of heart, Bridget Asher's unforgettable novel is about mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and the deep friendships between women. It's about sweet liars and tenderhearted cheaters--about loving those we love for reasons we can't always fully rationalize, and about the sort of forgiveness that can change someone's entire life in the most unexpected and extraordinary ways.
