Summary
During the four years of physician Margaret Overton's acrimonious divorce, she dated widely and indiscriminately, determined to find her soul mate and live happily ever after. But then she discovered she had a brain aneurysm. She discovered it at a particularly awkward moment on a date with one of many Mr. Wrongs. This is Overton's hilarious story of dealing with the most serious of life's problems: the death of close friends, the dissolution of a long marriage, a sudden health crisis, the realities of midlife. It's about loss of life, loss of love, loss of innocence; about spirituality, self-delusion, even sheer stupidity. It's written from a physician's perspective, but it's not about medicine, per se; it's about coming of age in adulthood, and making an effort to help others through midlife.--From publisher description
