Are you a writer? Casey Peabody had been working on her novel for six years. She’s mending her heart and piecing her life back together after her mother’s sudden death and the end of a love affair. While all of her friends have moved on with successful careers and family life, she’s living in Cambridge, Massachusetts, waiting tables in Harvard Square and writing in a tiny rented room. She’s emotional and stuck without a plan. When two very different lovers enter her life, is one a better fit than the other? Both are writers and the conversations are engaging and literary. But can she handle her own feelings while balancing the pressure of finishing her book and being in a relationship? How will she move forward?

King delivers a novel filled with hope, friendship and romance. Readers will appreciate the honest struggles of a writer, the publishing world, and finding time to write.
