Description


If Tuesdays with Morrie were written by a young woman going through a difficult divorce instead of Mitch Albom, and Morrie were a ninety-three-year-old recent widower who dispensed wisdom over his sublime roast chicken and apricot soufflé, you'd have Dinner with Edward. When journalist Isabel Vincent befriends Edward, both are at a crossroads: he wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love. Isabel's friend, Edward's daughter, lives far away and has asked Isabel to check in on her dad in New York. At first, Isabel is just doing her duty. But soon this charming, elegant, cultured man has become her dear friend. She gives him a reason to go on without his beloved wife of 72 years, and he gives her a renewed faith that happiness is possible. Each chapter in this true-life tale takes place at dinner at Edward's apartment, and like Edward's meals, the whole adds up to so much more than the ingredients.
