I think Susan will relate to this one better than I will, but this is pretty much my site now, so here goes.

What happens when the world you love doesn’t press pause when you do? Singer-songwriter Christine Daley hit the streets of Boston and became a minor celebrity-with a local radio hit-in the 90s, but a “short” career break to marry and have kids changed everything. Now, sixteen years later, she’s a frustrated suburban housewife, struggling to find her place in life. After filing for divorce, she learns that her attempts to reestablish her own rhythms-both in music and in love-are more complicated than she’d anticipated. Her two teenagers are desperate for their mom, and her soon-to-be-ex-husband is throwing every obstacle he can in her way. Adding to the stress is the progress in technology, which has not only changed the music industry, but also the dating world. Is there room in the mix for Chris?

Lots going on here, and it could pull the Rock Fiction out of the book, or the Rock Fiction can compliment the story or… I don’t know! Let me read it and see. But be careful. This is one Susan may not let me have.
