Set in Toronto in the early 1970's when women's empowerment was on the rise, Joanne tells of self-realization and self-sufficiency after eighteen years of a gradually deteriorating marriage. Joanne is being treated like an old boot, and this story, written in her diary, delves into the heat of emotions and all the usual problems of lawyers, division of property, disposal of the house, finding a job, handling the overbearing mother-in-law, and the unusual kidnapping of her children. This crisis precipitates a chain of events which lead to the discovery that a happy life is not only possible, but sometimes easier, without a husband.
