Lizzie Buckley has a life many women dream of - a gorgeous husband, a beautiful home and darling (when they''re not fighting) three-year-old twins. But ever since the birth of her children, she''s had a fantasy about locking herself in her bedroom for twenty-four hours with a good book and a box of chocolates.


Unfortunately, her husband James doesn''t understand her feelings. And when Lizzie unburdens herself in a flaming email to her sister Janie, then hits send at the wrong moment and accidentally shoots it off to James instead, her fairytale life gets a big dose of reality. With the word "divorce" ringing in her ears, Lizzie finds herself moving out and embarking on a totally different life - working hard to reinvent herself as a runner, a gardener, and a writer of children''s books.


But despite transforming her body, her neglected career, and her libido (courtesy of the local landscape gardener), Lizzie can''t get over her soon-to-be ex. As Lizzie discovers, sometimes the fairytale ending is just the beginning of the real story.
