About the Book

In this gripping novel of loss and regret, Steve Goldman, about to turn 80, has just buried his wife Evelyn. Alone in his San Francisco home, he ponders his future, wonders if loneliness awaits him as a widower. For that matter, will he want to share his remaining years with another woman? If so, will he be worthy? Steve undergoes the challenging process of taking stock of his life—the good he’s done and the bad. Digging deep into his memory, he examines his relationships with Evelyn, his daughters, women in his post-college/post-army years and his “blood-brother” childhood friends from New York. The scales tip back and forth, influenced by achievements and kindnesses, betrayals and pain.
