Gasbarre's grandfather and grandmother had the perfect marriage and the perfect life. Gasbarre is beginning to think she will never find anyone with whom she can share her life, that she will never have a marriage or a life like that of her grandparents. After a sojourn in Europe and yet another disastrous relationship, she returns home to spend time with her grandmother and listen to her counsel. I had mixed feelings about this book. I got very tired of hearing about the clothing and the jewelry that Gasbarre wore on her dates. I got very tired of her recitation of the Voice in Her Head that constantly warned her of impending disaster when it came to men. Yet I found her desire to follow in the footsteps of her grandparents quite refreshing in this day and that saved the book for me.
