With two small boys to raise and a mountain of articles to edit for the Review of Applied Ethics, Isabel barely has any time for herself. After hiring an au pair and an assistant editor, Isabel is relieved, but when she finds that both women have romantic entanglements that threaten to interfere with their work, she must decide how best to navigate this tricky situation. Following book 11, A Distant View of Everything, Isabel also makes the acquaintance of Patricia, a pushy single mom. Seeing Patricia with an unscrupulous man, Isabel must once again call on her kindness and keen intelligence to determine the right course of action, at home, at work, and in the schoolyard.
