“Ruth Talbot, the protaganist in About Face is a real Tomato! Smart, accomplished, and so relatable.”
- The Three Tomatoes
You’re going to love Ruth Talbot, a 50-something cosmetic executive, who is engaged in a fiery power struggle with her new boss, and has a younger co-worker yearning for her job and willing to do almost anything to undermine her. And as she prepares to launch a new line of cosmetics for women over 50, she faces her own internal feelings about growing older. Plus there's a whopper of a struggle going on between her internal ex-Peace Corps volunteer and her businesswoman exterior; then her husband clobbers her with a "Let's both retire" campaign. Retire? She's not old enough to retire. Is she? Meanwhile, she's also burning up from hot flashes.
About Face is definitely a book Tomatoes will love.
