Approaching 30 with no prospective husband in sight, the author wonders how her life took such a divergent turn from the fairytale. With no "knight in shining armor," can there be a "happily ever after"? Nobody ever prepared her to answer that question; so she sets out to find one. Filled with personal anecdotes and emotional revelations, the author chronicles her journey of accepting the possibility that she could remain in a perpetual state of singleness forever. And if that happens, she needs a different "happily ever after."
