Fifty-one year old Julia Goldman thought she had experienced it all.
Although she had been widowed for two years, she was left financially
well-fixed with two grown children who were busy with their successful
careers. Life was routine and uneventful for Julia in her Hollywood
home. She thought she would just ease into the rest of her days without
anything notable looming on the horizon. Suddenly, "Life with a Capital
L" hands her what is to become the biggest decision of her life; the
sort of occurrence to which many a younger woman would hardly be equal.
An accidental encounter in the cocktail lounge of a posh hotel with a
man who sweeps her off her feet and then disappears, leaves her with
much more than just a fond memory. She is no longer able to conceal her
predicament. The sibling rivalry of her children, plus her own with her
flamboyant sister, Verna, add to the complexity, and to the resolution
of her plight.
