I read this book in a couple of hours. It is the simple story of Addie and Louis, two long-time neighbors who hardly knew each other but whose empty lives are filled with joy in each other’s company. The plot is uncomplicated and yet is filled with simple truths about love, complicated parent-adult child relationships and loss. The author, however, shows how even in their seventies people can still find friendship and love if they open their hearts. It is also a story of an adult child not accepting his mother’s new-found relationship and withholding his love to manipulate her. A very quick read and an inspiring story.
