Sally Lightfoot, 50, has reached the Age of Invisibility where even charity muggers avoid her. So her friend’s challenge to get back out there and lose her wididity, her born-again virginity, falls on deaf ears. 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 Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall type passing her way, all sexy salty hair and rubber wellies 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, 60s home of Leonard Cohen and island of choice for the affluent hippie, a chance encounter with a man of her own age awakens parts of Sally that she’d forgotten she ever possessed. If she could, she most definitely would. But would he ?
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.
“One minute this book has the reader laughing out loud, the next we are sobbing. Romantic, hilarious, engaging and highly perceptive.” JACQUI LOFTHOUSE, The Writing Coach.
“Last night I finished it before my cats got fed.” ELIZABETH BACON-SMITH
“An awesome read.” GIGGLESILLY REVIEWS
“As with a coming of age story, those who are going through a similar situation can take comfort in the fact that the difficulties are universal. Those who have already been there (and those convinced they never will) can laugh at Sally’s foibles.” TOP US BOOK BLOG REVIEWER BIG AL AT BIG AL’S BOOKS & PALS
“A wonderful story about a woman learning to find herself again. It did remind me a little of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, but it was different enough to stand on its own merits and be enjoyable. If you enjoy a book that takes you on an emotional roller coaster while rooting for the main character, this is the book for you.” Literary R&R
“This is the best book ever. That’s the only way to describe it!” RITA REVIEWS
“Insightful and delightful, full of thoughtful dialogue and exceptional clarity.” Leslie Wright, Tic Toc/HUFFINGTON POST BOOKS
