By Mameve Medwed (Electronic Book, 2001)
Daisy and Henry Lewis have been married for twenty years. They dine out on sushi, battle for parking places in Harvard Square, and have long served as a host family for Harvard's international students.

Now, in this irreverent, on-the-mark look at modern relationships, forty-something Daisy is about to question the causes and effects of love. . . .

Daisy should have seen "it" coming. In a dispirited dive of a Japanese restaurant, Henry drops the news like a bit of rice off his chopstick: Their marriage is over. Kaput. Fini. Their model host family is anything but. Then, under surprising circumstances, Daisy meets Truman Wolfe, a Harvard parasitologist. Gradually, she starts to feel grounded again . . . until another international stu
