Gwyn Huntington knows how to throw a party. And Hunt Hall, her postcard perfect Victorian home in Montauk, is no stranger to celebrations. But on the morning of her thirty-fifth wedding anniversary, she's putting finishing touches on the last party she'll host there: a party to celebrate her divorce.

Just over one hundred miles away, Gwyn's future daughter-in-law, Maggi Mackenzie, sits on the floor of her Brooklyn apartment attempting to organize her new life. She's in love with a wonderful man, and today she is meeting his family for the first time.

The Divorce Party takes us into the lives of these two women at opposite ends of marriage. For all the differences between them -- distance, privilege age -- Gwyn and Maggie have one thing in common. Each has found herself a a crossroads, facing the same question: How hard should you work to stay with the person you love?

Insightful, funny, and deeply moving, The Divorce Party will touch anyone whose heart has weathered an unexpected storm.
