Everything Claire Raphael has she's earned. On her own. The hard way. She built her part-time business up from nothing and made it successful through her imagination, creativity, and hard work. She has two great children and Dennis, a husband she loves completely.

Then, one evening, when Claire returns from a difficult business trip, Dennis hands her divorce papers along with a court order to vacate their house. Claire is devastated. She had no idea her marriage was on the brink of disaster, that Dennis had been planning this ambush for weeks, if not months, or that her hectic but happy life was about to come crashing down around her.

Claire doesn't know where to turn or whom to trust. But in a few short weeks she learns what so many women have had to discover—that when the going gets tough, a woman's as tough as she needs to be.

Barbara Delinsky, a lifelong New Englander, was a sociologist and photographer before she began to write. There are more than 30 million copies of her books in print.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Woman's Place I was a little worried that this book would be anti-male. Luckily it isn't, but it is still disappointing. It starts with a bang -- with a situation that is horrifying in its possibility, and a strong and determined character, but it all becomes rather tame by the end. While the mother's concern for the effect a complicated custody battle will have on her children is admirable, I still think she is far too accepting and forgiving of her husband. The plot is unique in its exploration into the reversal of judicially preferred parenthood. If only I had stopped reading half way through.
