Eva Hanover hits 40 years of age...and she has it all: a brilliant career, a gorgeous brownstone in Brooklyn, and a sexy husband.
Or, at least, she thought.
In the wink of an eye, Eva's husband leaves her. She loses the brownstone and throws away her career in a fit of pique. With only the clothes on her back, she flees New York for the sunnier climate of Key Largo.
As Eva puts it, her marriage went south, and so does she.
Stuck in Key Largo, it is sink or swim for the devastated Eva. Starting over at 40 is hard for anyone, but Eva wonders if she can. Step by step she makes her way back to happiness and possibly finds love again.
