This book deals with the life of one woman and her children who have a clothing shop in New York for a living to support her four children since the demise of her husband. Now her children choose to play against the odds, much to their mother’s dismay.
Isabelle falls for her client when fighting a criminal case for him. Julie is a young designer meets a man who is too good and falls into his trap. She marries him quickly, gives up her job, moves to LA to be at his side, ignoring the danger signs. Justin is an amateur writer who wants to have his own children before he is actually ready to have him- poor financial conditions and he is not emotionally ready also. Willie, the youngest, a tech expert, makes a choice that shocks them all, with a woman fifteen years older.
Kate – loving, supportive and outspoken – can’t keep her children from playing against the odds. Can the odds be beaten? No matter how much she loves him, in the end, the risks are their own and the hardest lesson as a mother is that she can’t protect them from the choices they make.
