Product description

From the Back Cover

Aspiring novelist Grace Warner is a burned-out English professor who spends her days teaching four sections of "Beowulf for Cretins" to bored and disinterested students at one of New England's "hidden ivy" colleges. Not long after she is unceremoniously dumped by her longtime girlfriend, Grace meets the engaging and mysterious Abbie on a cross-country flight to attend a friend's 60th birthday party. Sparks fly on and off the plane as the two strangers give in to a reckless impulse, with no strings attached and no information exchanged. Back home at St. Alban's the college rocks Grace's world when it announces the appointment of a new president, the first woman in its 150-year history. Cue Abbie--and cue Grace's collision course with fate, a neurotic dog named Grendel, an increasingly fractious and suspicious tenure review committee, and what very well might be her last shot a real happiness.
