After a decade as a high-profile magazine editor, 35 year old Elayna now works from home, having traded her glamorous life for raising her daughter Hazel and caring for her lawyer husband, Paul. Two years ago Elayna and Paul lost a child and only now is Elayna's passion for life and sex returning. But with Paul spending long hours at the office, Elayna discovers longings for a young neighbour that could destroy everything she cherishes - even as a threat to Hazel emerges. Hanauer is editor of bestselling essay collection The Bitch In The House, published by Penguin UK.

-- Kirkus Reviews
"Intelligent and engaging, Sweet Ruin examines the fallout from grief and the intricacies of family, while weighing the comforts of the prosaic against the tantalizing allure of the new."
