"Book clubs, start your engines! Jeannie Ralston's engaging read takes on all the current issues on a woman's plate -- career, marriage, kids, health, money, sanity and social conscience. It's good and it's good for you."
--Marianne Wiggins, author of "The Shadow Catcher" and "Evidence of Things Unseen" "A smart, ambitious -and secretly 'hayseed'- Tennessee girl comes to Manhattan and earns her props as a magazine writer. Then she falls in love with a Lone Star State-loyal globe-trotting photographer and agrees to chuck her hard-won sophistication to become a Texan, a ranch wife and mother, and finally, an herb farmer. Jeannie Ralston's deliciously intimate exploration of autonomy vs. partnership, worldliness vs. domesticity, and order vs. chaos is filled with epiphanies scented in lavender. Worried about finding your strength in a marriage to a (benignly) dominating man? Read this, enjoy, and have heart."
