Ruth Talbot is battling so many demons, she doesn't know where to not-look first. As the fifty-something marketing director of a New York City cosmetics firm, she's engaged in a fiery power struggle with her new boss.

Meanwhile, the successful corporate executive she is on the outside is feuding with the idealistic Peace Corps volunteer she used to be, still there inside. As if that weren't enough, her body is betraying her with hot flashes and her husband clobbers her with a plea that they both retire. Retire? She's not that old. Is she?

She has a stroke-of-genius idea for a product that could generate huge profits for her company, vanquish her boss, and position her to retire on a high note of success. She soon realizes that the new project may win her a victory in the office showdown, but won't provide the inner-outer handshake she craves. Winning the wrong game isn't going to be enough; she'll have to turn her life upside down so she no longer feels like she's living it inside out.
