The battle of the sexes hasn't ended - it's just moved to suburbia. Now Olivia Goldsmith returns to the trenches in a new novel as unforgettable as The First Wives Club.

Michelle has a perfect marriage, a perfect house and a perfect life in middle-class Westchester - until she finds out how her husband has been paying for it all.

Her friend Jada has worked too hard to become the first black woman bank manager in their town, as well as a wonderful mother and homemaker, to let her lay-about husband take it all away from her. But can she stop him?

Angie is their lawyer - and she knows exactly what they're going through. Married just a year ago, she's been shell-shocked to find out about her wealthy, Ivy League husband's extra-marital activities. Can she help herself, as well as helping her friends?

Let down by their men and by the law - now all they have is each other. Moving, funny and angry, this is the story of how a friendship formed in adversity helps Michelle, Jada and Angie fight back.
