Terry gives an overview of the book:

The author of Waiting to Exhale checks in again with a fresh, exuberant novel. Stella Payne is a Superwoman who has everything—except a man to rock her world, something she’s convinced she can well do without. On a spur-of-the-moment Jamaican vacation she meets Winston, a man half her age, and finds, to her dismay, that her world is indeed well and truly rocked. Stella soon realizes that she’s come to a cataclysmic juncture in her life, one that forces new and difficult questions about her passions and expectations.
