Maybe you know Amanda. Maybe you are Amanda. Whoever you are, you will love Amanda. An important, shrewd, and laugh- out-loud funny debut novel that answers the question: What happens when Bridget Jones or the Sex and the City girls get married and have babies?

Nothing ever prepared Amanda for this: not her elite college degree, not her brainy friends, not her mother the feminist heroine. At age 35, she finds herself at home with two children, mopping spills and singing "The Itsy-Bitsy Spider." It doesn't help that her husband's face is all over national television -- or that her best friend is dating a billionaire -- or that every woman she knows seems to have a plastic surgeon and an interior decorator.

While everyone else is racing up the fast track, it's getting hard for Amanda to remember why she left work in the first place.

Set amidst the glamor and power of boom-time Washington, D.C., Amanda Bright is a novel about status and ambition -- marriage and jealousy -- and a woman's struggle to discover the things that matter most. Amanda Bright@Home will become an anthem for a generation of women that is learning that success is not always found at the office.
