Summary
Rory McGovern is entering the ostensible prime of her life when her husband, Blake, loses his dream job and announces he feels like "taking a break" from being a husband and father. Without warning Rory is single-parenting two kids, juggling their science projects, flu season, and pajama days, while coming to terms with her disintegrating marriage. And without Blake, her only hope is to accept a full-time position working for two full-time twenty-somethings. Can Rory learn to decipher her bosses' texts that read like license plates? And is there any hope of saving her marriage?
Summary
When her husband loses his job and promptly abandons the family, middle-aged Rory McGovern returns to the workforce under two obnoxious 20-something employers and struggles with the challenges of single parenting
