Genie Toledo is a spitfire who married the wrong guy young, had a daughter, and divorced. Now in her forties, she has compensated by throwing herself into her work as a top-notch cardiologist. Over the years, Genie, although smart, funny, and immensely likable, has kept her emotions at bay and her loved ones at a distance. She doesn't need anyone. She's self-sufficient. She doesn't even mind that Mick, the man she meets every Thursday at their hotel has a wife and a basketball team that takes up most of his time. She doesn't mind until Mick becomes fatally ill, and everything she thought was certain seems to be slipping away.

Genie Toledo is a spitfire who married the wrong guy young, had a daughter, and divorced. Now in her forties, she has compensated by throwing herself into her work as a top-notch cardiologist in Columbus, Ohio. Over the years, Genie, although smart, funny, and immensely likable, has kept her emotions at bay and her loved ones at a distance. That includes her best friend and her college-age daughter. But then there is Mick Crabbe: she's had an affair with the charming, but married, coach of the Turkman State Warriors basketball team for eleven years. Every Thursday they meet at their hotel, and Genie can let herself ignore the fact that she shares him not just with his wife and grown children, but also with his basketball team and all the fans. Their relationship suits Genie just fine. She's self-sufficient. She doesn't need him. She doesn't need anyone.
That is, until Mick becomes seriously, fatally, ill, and everything Genie had thought was certain seems to be slipping through her fingers. Just as her daughter embraces a relationship that questions everything that Genie values, Mick's illness brings into full focus all the complications they have worked so hard to ignore, and Genie must let go of the tether on her heart, allowing herself to change.
