Edward Schuyler is an available man. Widowed for over one year, Edward has not yet joined the dating scene. Well-meaning friends have tried, but failed to find his match.
When his grown step-children place an ad on his behalf in the New York Review of Books, the fun begins. Edward starts meeting women on his terms, though he still misses his wife, Bee.
One ad, in particular, leads to a most interesting meeting, and Edward finds himself in a relationship again.
A quiet, surprising, and sweet story. Really quite wonderful.
