Ready to launch her youngest child to college, forty-five-year-old Jess Lawson is blindsided by her doctor husband, Arthur, when he announces his intention to take a prestigious new job on the other side of the country--alone. Amid their acrimonious divorce, revelations about Arthur's infidelity come to light, just as Jess's healthcare consulting firm uncovers surprising financial corruption that threatens a scandal for her client--and the well-being of the many unsuspecting physicians and patients they serve. Ultimately, this superwoman is forced to acknowledge that her put-together veneer can't hold up under the weight of these new burdens. She also, however, refuses to wallow in victimhood. So what now? --
