Struggling to pick up the pieces after her marriage falls apart, Trudy Marino finds support from a quirky, eclectic group of friends—her goddesses of Kitchen Avenue. There's Jade, a fiery social worker who's finding unexpected strength to deal with her "player" ex-husband; Jade's grandmother, Roberta, who has just lost her husband of sixty-two years—and through memory and grief wonders what to do with the rest of her life; Shannelle, an aspiring writer, determined to realize her talent despite formidable obstacles; and Angel, a young, quietly knowing photographer who makes Trudy uncover a sensuality she never knew—even as he tries to get over the one love he can never really forget.

When Trudy weighs what she and her husband still share against new possibilities, she'll surprise everyone—including herself—as she tries to reconcile the best of both.
