Marta Zinsser grew up in a conservative old Seattle suburb
and couldn't wait to leave for New York, where she thrived
as an independent woman with no need for men--ever--until
she decided to have a baby. Ten years later, when her
mother becomes ill, Marta realizes that this may be her
daughter Eva's last chance to get to know her grandmother.
Returning to Seattle, Marta and Eva take up residence on
the affluent, technology-drenched Eastside, filled now by
snobby old money families and even snobbier nouveau riche.
Enrolling Eva in the local school, Marta accedes to her
daughter's wishes and agrees to join the PTA despite being
horrified by the fancy moms who dominate it. With wealthy
husbands, massive homes, nannies, no jobs, and their own
hierarchy, the fancy moms have no intention of letting a
bohemian mom like Marta into their private circle.
Will Marta be able to carve a niche for both herself and
Eva? And when gorgeous maverick Luke Flynn appears in
Marta's line of vision, will she find love after keeping it
at arm's length all this time?
