    In the weeks following the break-up, Emma is mess. She concludes that she is a spinster. She goes after a job promotion she does not really want and drives her friends crazy with her depression. Ultimately, Emma looks within and realizes she does not need a man to live a full life; only to find love when she least expects it.

    Lynda Curnyn has written a novel featuring a heroine that most people will enjoy reading about and even sympathize with her intense angst. Emma does not always behave admirably but even with some questionable decisions, she gets her act together. CONFESSIONS OF AN EX-GIRLFRIEND is part comedy, but mostly a serious, delightful look at people at a painful point in their lives.
