Publisher's Summary

Hillary Wilkes is the unlikely middle-aged heroine, in this romantic comedy, about a woman whose life is a precarious climb on an uphill battle.

Toronto, early 2000's. Hillary "Lary" Wilkes is an emotionally and physically challenged, 'Over Fifty' - once a very vibrant woman. She's at the lowest point of her life, having lost her dream job to a younger woman, her self-esteem, and even her sense of humor. Hillary is overweight, underloved, and, as a result, feels unlovable - except perhaps from her family, whose encouragement keeps her from bottoming out.

But enough of the self-pity: This is the year she will find herself an exciting new career, lose the 20 pounds for good, and find the perfect mate. Quit smoking. Sort out her finances and...well - maybe she can’t do it all at once. But with the help of her best friend Becks; her wonderful neighbor Howard; her lovely niece Pumpkin, and her loyal brother Roger; and the cheery encouragement from a new friend Dudley, she knows she can do it. One step at a time.

With a hitch here and there, and plenty of fun and hilarity, Lary reaches for the hilltop. But can she find the perfect job, and the perfect man?
