Description

In this affecting and “rewarding” epistolary novel, two unlikely divorcés — a romantic pessimist and a newfound bachelor — get a second chance at love (New York Times Book Review).

When Eve Petworth writes to Jackson Cooper to praise a scene in one of his books, they discover a mutual love of cookery and food. Their friendship blossoms against the backdrop of Jackson’s colorful, but ultimately unsatisfying, love life and Eve’s tense relationship with her soon-to-be married daughter.

As each of them offers, from behind the veils of semi-anonymity and distance, wise and increasingly affectionate counsel to the other, they both begin to confront their problems and plan a celebratory meeting in Paris — a meeting that Eve fears can never happen.
