When journalist Isabel Vincent befriends Edward, both are at a crossroads: He wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love.
Isabel's friend, Edward's daughter, lives far away and has asked Isabel to check in on her dad in New York. At first Isabel is just doing her duty. But soon this charming, elegant, cultured man has become her dear friend. She gives him a reason to go on without his beloved wife of 72 years, and he gives her a renewed faith that happiness is possible.
Each chapter in this true-life tale takes place at dinner at Edward's apartment, and, like Edward's meals, the whole adds up to so much more than the ingredients.

A story that makes you review and think about your life. Great for foodies who love the cookie tips. Wish it never ended.
I was not crazy about the performance. The reader sometimes seemed to break up sentences where they weren't meant to be broken up, and had a bit of an overly sweet tone.
