Publisher Comments:

The brilliantly funny and heartwarming New York Times bestseller about a young woman who stumbles, then fights to build a new life after the death of her husband. 36-year-old Sophie Stanton loses her young husband to cancer. In an age where women are expected to be high-achievers, Sophie desperately wants to be a good widow?a graceful, composed Jackie Kennedy kind of widow. Alas, Sophie is more of a Jack Daniels kind. Downing cartons of ice-cream for breakfast, breaking down in the produce section of supermarkets, showing up to work in her bathrobe and bunny slippers?soon she's not only lost her husband, but her job and her waistline as well. In a desperate attempt to reinvent her life, Sophie moves to Ashland, Oregon. But instead of the way it's depicted in the movies, with a rugged Sam Shepherd kind of guy finding her, Sophie finds herself in the middle of Lucy-and-Ethel madcap adventures with a darkly comic edge. Still, Sophie proves that with enough humor and chutzpah, it is possible to have life after loss.

Chandra, April 26, 2010 (view all comments by Chandra)
I accidentially ran across this book and thought it sounded alright and picked up for a weekend read. Once I got home and opened it I could not put it down! I loved it, I am usually I only read a book once no matter how much I like it but this book I have read twice and there will be a third time too. The author has a knack with keeping the reader enthralled and interested and her characters are so real and full of emotions but real emotions not fake sappy emotions. The characters are funny and caring yet they have rage, envy, and sadness just like you and me. If you do not have a next read picked out yet try this one you'll be glad you did. The author Lolly Winston also has another great book out called Happiness Sold Seperatly that you might want to check out it is just as good as this one.
