On both counts. I was a veteran of too many soured relationships to let myself be otherwise. Still, after Myra had gone I pulled out the picture of Tom I keep in the zipper pocket of my purse. It was taken late last summer, the one and only time we'd gone camping together.

It was a long way from my plushly carpeted, twenty-seventh floor office at Goldman & Latham in San Francisco.
