Grace Purdy, mother of two and part-time business professor, is facing a crisis in both her marital and professional life. As an expatriate American living in London, she is doing her best to survive a divorce—both physically and financially—all while navigating the English legal system.
Grace spends her days working on her legal case while running between business lectures and collecting her sons from the school bus. Her soon to be ex-husband won't take any money out of his business, leaving Grace to pay the bills. Additionally, she has given up having child care so she can pay for a lawyer in her battle to keep the marital home.
During Grace's journey she confronts the predicament of so many other mothers who have learned that no matter how much they give or "lean in" now it can be unbelievably challenging not to feel exhausted and broken.
Throughout her journey Grace uses her sharp wit and humor to navigate around any obstacles she encounters.
