With its food, jazz and stunning views of Manhattan, recently widowed ninety-something Edward’s home was a much-needed refuge for his neighbour, reporter Isabel Vincent.
Over weekly dinners where they both grieved for their very different lost marriages, Isabel realized she was being offered a gift greater than good wine and perfect lamb chops. As they progressed from meals à deux to parties with an eclectic crowd, she saw that Edward was showing her how to rediscover the joy of life and turn hers around.
