Nobody - not her kids, not her MIT math-genius husband - could have predicted that Lucy Crocker, former children's librarian and unabashed computer ignoramus, would be the one to save the family's software company. Nevertheless, that's exactly what happens when she has an unexpected brainstorm to create a fantasy computer game called Maiden's Quest. Suddenly, Lucy, of all people, is a cyber-guru. This is an amusing story of how Lucy weans her pasty-faced boys from their computer addictions, restores order to her marriage, and comes up with a sequel to Maiden's Quest in the process. Woven throughout this book are wit, insight, and a light touch where comic and not-so-comic effects of technology on life and love come alive at the dawn of the millennium. Light shelf wear at the top of the dustjacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. ; 362 pages
