Publisher's Summary

From The New York Times best-selling author of Good Grief comes a richly poignant and stirring story that asks: How soon is too soon to fall in love again?

The last thing Rudy expected was to wake up one Saturday morning, a widower at 54 years old. Now, 10 months after the untimely death of his beloved wife, he’s still not sure how to move on from the defining tragedy of his life - but his new job is helping. After being downsized from his finance position, Rudy turned to his first love: the piano. Some people might be embarrassed to work as the piano player at Nordstrom, but for Rudy, there’s joy in bringing a little music into the world. And it doesn’t hurt that Sasha, the Hungarian men’s watch clerk who is finally divorcing her no-good husband, finds time to join him at the bench every now and then. 

Just when Rudy and Sasha’s relationship begins to deepen, the police come to the store with an update about Rudy’s wife’s untimely death - a coworker has confessed to her murder - but Rudy’s actions are suspicious enough to warrant a second look at him, too. With Sasha’s husband suddenly reappearing, and Rudy’s daughter confronting her own marital problems, suddenly life becomes more complicated than Rudy and Sasha could have imagined.  

With trademark humor and sweetness, which will appeal to readers and listeners of Jennifer Weiner and Fredrik Backman but is uniquely her own, Lolly Winston delivers a heartfelt and realistic portrait of loss and grief, hope and forgiveness, and two imperfect people coming together to create a perfect love story.

Enjoyable Listen

I must admit, I only ordered this book because it was written by a Bay Area writer (someone I knew nothing about), and it was mentioned in the San Francisco Chronicle. Within the first few minutes I was absorbed into the story about a downsized tech employee who plays the piano at Nordstrom to make ends meet. The story that unfolds is full of love, struggle, and endearing characters as they work to rebuild their lives. Your life will not be improved by the story, but your week will.
