Trying to balance a career and motherhood while searching for the perfect man, independent divorcee Claire suffers a series of bad relationships before meeting Tim, whose similar problems lead to a tumultuous joining of two families

Blackwell North Amer
Claire is "pushing forty with a short stick." She's divorced and raising two teenagers in a small town where just about everybody else is married. Claire longs for companionship, romance, and passion. She's tried blind dates, answered the personals. She's still looking.
When Claire meets Tim - also divorced, struggling to raise his own daughter, Ursula - she believes she's found the perfect partner and lover. But as Tim and Claire work toward joining their families and building an intimate life together, their families clash in a never-ending battle for attention and affection: Ursula resents Claire, and Claire's children hate Ursula. When Ursula wreaks a unique and deadly vengeance on everyone, her mother suddenly shows up after a two-year absence and both families spin out of control. "I used to think you and I could make a family together," Claire tells Tim. "Now I feel I'm losing the family I had."
Where Love Goes is a poignant and stirring story about a woman's brave attempt to remake her life. Maynard writes realistically - at times comically, at times lyrically - about the issues women deal with today: the conflict between sexuality and domesticity, how to be a good enough mother and still survive professionally, and how to find passion and enduring love along the way.
