A heartwarming, hilarious novel for anyone who has ever had a family, from the author of Lift And Separate. After a lifetime of marriage, Marcy Hammer, a Jewish woman living in Connecticut, is ready to get herself unhitched – just as everyone else in her life is looking for a commitment. Her new boyfriend, Jon, wants to get serious, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Harvey, The Bra King, wants to get back together. When Marcy’s headstrong daughter, Amanda, announces a secret engagement to Harvey’s attorney, Marcy finds herself planning her daughter’s wedding as she plans her own divorce. Although Marcy dreams of a traditional Jewish wedding, Amanda has other ideas, rejecting the Jewish traditions that both Marcy and Harvey hold dear. Amanda has no interest in dancing a hora or asking a rabbi to perform the ceremony. In fact, she’d really like to be married by her psychiatrist. From petty skirmish over an ever-growing guest list to awkward confrontations with Marcy’s sticky-fingered new in-laws pulling off the wedding is going to be a challenge. And trying to make everyone happy might prove to be impossible – because in the end, Marcy alone must make a choice between something old and something new.
