"A raw, propulsive memoir about a woman trying to reinvent her life who finds that being free to make any choice means being free to make every mistake.."-- Provided by publisher. "In this page-turning memoir, a woman tries to reinvent her life after divorce and discovers that sometimes finding yourself is not all it's cracked up to be. Trapped in a dissatisfying marriage for nearly a decade, New York journalist Heather Chaplin finally summons the courage to leave. On her own, she finds herself intoxicatingly free, pursuing adventure, and juggling romance on two continents in multiple cities. She contemplates the meaning of life; she falls for a handsome Irishman. But as the adventures progress, Chaplin's own reckless choices send her spiraling downward--and toward a reckoning she's avoided all her life. Pulled from Chaplin's own diaries, Reckless Years is a raw, propulsive debut: unfailingly profound and impossible to put down"-- Provided by publisher.
