A lovely debut novel - very compassionate but with nice bits of tender humour. A heartbreaking, touching look at loss.

Back Cover Blurb:
Thirty-six-year-old Sophie Stanton desperately wants to be a good widow - a graceful, composed, Jackie Kennedy kind of widow. Alas, she is more of the Jack Daniels kind. Self-medicating with ice cream for breakfast, breaking down at the supermarket, and showing up to work in her bathrobe and bunny slippers - soon she's not only lost her husband, but her job, house.....and waistline.
With humour and chutzpah Sophie leaves town, determined to reinvent her life. But starting over has its hurdles: soon she's involved with a thirteen-year-old who has a fascination with fire, and a handsome actor who inspires a range of feelings she can't cope with - yet.
