When Edward Schuyler, a modest and bookish sixty-two-year-old science teacher, is widowed, he finds himself ambushed by female attention. There are plenty of unattached women around, but a healthy, handsome, available man is a rare and desirable creature. The problem is that Edward doesn't feel available. He's still mourning his beloved wife, Bee. When his stepchildren surprise him by placing a personal ad on his behalf, the letters flood in, and Edward is torn between his loyalty to Bee's memory and his growing longing for connection. Reluctantly, he begins dating, with varying results. In this tender and funny novel, award-winning author Hilma Wolitzer mines the unpredictable fallout of suddenly becoming single later in life, and the chaos and joys of falling in love the second time around
