This is yet another unforgettable book written by the best selling author with characters that have stayed in my mind for over 25 years.

As with many of the author’s books, this was a tear jerker however, it stands as one of her best books.

Smart, likable Bernie Fine was the wonder boy of Wolff’s, New York’s most glamorous department store. A senior VP on the way up, he arrives in San Francisco to open a West Coast store. His career is skyrocketing, but his life lacks a center.
