For Manhattan public relations exec Rochelle Weiss, everything in life has come easily -- good looks, good grades, professional success -- until her life is turned upside down by the news that her beloved parents are dying.
Determined to care for them in their final days, Rochelle loses her job, the support of her lover, Phil, and her lifelong belief that everything will turn out okay. Finding herself alone and nearly broke, she has nowhere to go but into the depths of her own unexplored soul. But when she agrees to take over a friend's dog-walking route, Rochelle discovers the abundance of life that lies beyond the trappings of success.
No longer defined by the expectations of others, she struggles to satisfy her own needs, her own yearnings. And yet the closer Rochelle comes to truly understanding what lies in her own heart, the more she realizes that all the pieces of her life must somehow fit together: her parents, her life before their deaths and her search for a new beginning.
