"A lively beach or commute read, this quick, cheerful parody of aging, capitalism, and marriage offers a little bit of everything--comedy, suspense, romance--and even some insights into the meaning of life."

-Booklife by Publishers Weekly

When the Gods wish to punish us they answer our prayers.

Rose and Henry Ball are the classic over-achieving, under-appreciated and financially strapped couple that dream of a second chance in life and pray for the rains to finally come to their parched, barren lives.  When the rains finally do arrive, in the form of a record-setting Powerball lottery, the sudden deluge brings unimaginable wealth, adventure and romance. Surely, the Balls now have the money to fulfill every dream and live happily ever after.

Be careful what you wish for…

With prayers answered, Rose and Henry plunge headlong into the intoxicating world of the super-rich.  They trade 2005 Town & Country for Gulfstream V and suburban split level for a Russian oligarch’s super yacht, throw caution to the wind and find more romance and adventure than they ever bargained on.  By the time Fate reveals her capricious nature, Rose and Henry Ball are in way over their heads, as Rose pursues a mysterious polo player from Palm Beach to Paris and Henry dodges death off the wild coast of New Guinea.  

When their great fortune slips away like a thief in the night, money can’t save Rose and Henry from terrible fates. But the Gods also have a lively sense of humor, and fair play. In the end, the couple discover a resilience they never knew existed and a second, even more valuable windfall…
