Abbey Lahey is a middle-class working mom who yearns for the finer things in life. And during a trip to the mall to return a Marc Jacobs handbag that she can not afford, she gets that opportunity.
She tumbles down the escalator and wakes up in the hospital as Abbey Van Holt, married to a wealthy man who she could have married years before.
That's the premise of Leigh Himes' debut novel, "The One That Got Away" (Hachette Books/2016). And Abbey is faced with the difficult question of whether she belongs in this new cushy world, or the one that gave her two children and a loving husband.
Host Frank Stasio talks with Himes about 'The One That Got Away.'
