Lindsay Chandler is a 32 year-old New York City working wife and mother frantically navigating between her job, husband, home, children, friends and other obligations.

She’s content with her life, until an unexpected friendship with her upstairs neighbor (he is charming) unleashes her passion and re-ignites her sparkle. This liaison causes her to re-evaluate her life. Yearning for a storybook ending, she decides to make changes in her life, embarking on a quest for self re-invention. Her “journey” is filled with Sex and The City type adventures complete with angst, dieting secrets, sex, abstinence, chocolate peanut butter ice-cream and black-tie affairs.

Set in modern day New York City Society.

If you are thinking this is just another chick lit story with a non-serious, superficial story, you are wrong. The story can be read on many levels. The title serves double meaning: apparent and underlying. The apparent meaning is of course about the physical appearance of Lindsay which does not match the Upper East Side ladies who are thin, one-dimensional and blonde. But the underlying meaning would be that she is an outsider(by her own choice?); a misfit in the shallow world of trophy wives.
