A woman in her thirties begins to question the routine and predictability of her days. In everybody's eyes, she has a perfect life: happy marriage, children, and a career. Yet what she feels is an enormous apathy. All that changes when she encounters a successful politician who had, years earlier, been her high school boyfriend. As she rediscovers the passion missing from her life, she will face a life-altering choice.

Married woman unfetters herself from everyday life moorings via a spontaneous affair through which she explores her sexual boundaries and experiments with self-expression. She's searching for meaning in life and struggling to acknowledge or treat her depression. In the end she professes to find a sense of fullness and absolution in the love of acceptance and forgiveness. If anyone could make you believe that a character completely devoid of spiritual depth could experience a life changing epiphany after escaping all material repercussions of her affair, it's Coelho. The writing and story telling is fluid. The internal dialogue of the main character is ever present carrying you through her story, the evolution of her emotions, and her conclusive explanation for everything.
