"A beautiful life interrupted then healed by the songs of Leonard Cohen."
Rock chick widow Sally Lightfoot, 50, is challenged to get back out there and lose her wididity, her born-again virginity, before she crumbles into sexless middle age. But why would she want to go through the dating hell her daughter Ami was going through? With added flabby bits? The chances of a stray suddenly-single Daniel Craig type passing her way were next to zero anyway. Let alone one who’d be interested in a short, mixed-up 50 year old who had not only misplaced her waistline but was still madly in love with her dead husband.
But when she braves a solo holiday to the traffic-free Greek isle of Hydra, island of choice for affluent old hippies, Sally falls under the spell of a singer of Leonard Cohen songs who has more than a few problems of his own when it comes to growing up. They get on so well and he awakens parts of Sally that she’d forgotten she ever possessed. If she could, she most definitely would. But why would he when he has the pick of the turnover of girls who come to the island all through the summer? There's only one way to find out. Sally must face her deepest fears of rejection and make the first move. Before it's too late and her chance has passed forever.
A tender, moving story of a widow’s journey from grief to acceptance to moving forwards in her life in a world where sex is everywhere but death is still the great taboo.
"A new voice in contemporary British fiction."
