Eric Yoshida is a 40-something year old man who feels stuck in life. He and his wife have separated. Eric is being considered to replace the retiring owner of the car dealership where he works. His heart is no longer in his work, even though he works twelve to fourteen hour days. His marriage has fallen apart after years of his wife’s rigidity. Kyra is upset after finding an email between Eric and Danielle, one of his co-workers. Eric later has a one-night stand with Danielle. When he receives a phone call that Kyra has been in a car acccident and does not remember the past few years, Eric has an opportunity to fall back in love with his wife. This means ignoring the mess that he has created.

The book’s turning point is when Eric is offered the job he has prepped himself for by working long hours and uprooting his family from the town they loved. His boss stands in front of Eric, as “my life flashed before my eyes.” He remembers why he loves his wife and realizes the changes he must make.
