Her father and her stepmother take care of her for a while, making sure she showers and eats.
It was like her salvation. Sophie, your husband died. Desperate to stay above water she decides to take up a friends offer and to move in with her and her daughter in Ashland, Oregon. It felt too obvious and too goofy.
She also immediately finds a handsome, hot, helpful straight guy who wants to marry her. I could see myself in her shoes throughout the whole book. I wonder if it’s visible, like a big red cartoon heart over my head?
You know that time when you’re too young to know better about books?

Good Grief : Lolly Winston :
I love Sophie Stanton and I want her recipes! Anyways I still thank you for sending this to me Ant. I think the only thing that had me rating this novel with only three stars is the main character’s ability to cope with the death of her husband so quickly and neatly. Second, I’m not married, even after six years.
Maybe because I thought it would be a chick lit book. She was fascinating, but I didn’t connect with her either.
