From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The One & Only, two thirtysomething sisters find themselves facing the question: If love and marriage and children don’t all come together at once, which do you fight for?

Meredith thought she’d done it all right—married the perfect man, had the perfect daughter—but as she grows increasingly restless, she can’t help but wonder if she got the love part wrong.

Josie has been happily single for years, but she wants a child of her own so much she’s one bad date away from heading straight for the baby carriage all on her own.

These sisters, whose relationship was strained by the tragic death of their older brother over a decade ago, now find that they need each other more than they realized.
