I left Cherisse's with new hope, with a new understanding of life. I was prepared to throw myself on my sword, apologize for all past insults and do my best to straighten the can of my life. To be honest, I think I was mostly excited because I had finally understood a metaphor. Granted, it had to be explained to me slowly, with small words, but I got it. I was very pleased with myself.

“I'm back, Mary.”

“How was Cherisse? What did she need?”

“She had me straightening out these beer cans and...”

“Beer cans? You were straightening out beer cans? I can't even get you to take the recycling out.”

Cherisse is a story of strife and redemption; infidelity and loyalty; misunderstanding and learning to understand.

When an elderly, and worldly, neighbor notices the impending end of a failing marriage she decides to step in and share her wisdom and life experience. If she can't help save the marriage, perhaps she can at least soften the pain.

"I went into this book knowing that this was not the typical contemporary romance, in which the muscled, tattooed, billionaire falls head over heels for an ordinary, but strikingly beautiful young woman. Instead... Michael Bosso's debut novel "Cherisse" puts you front and center into the midst of a troubled marriage with three kids. The couple, Steve and Mary, have been married for a number of years and life has done more than it's share of getting in the way of love. There is very little, if any, love left. After moving to a new neighborhood, the couple befriends their elderly neighbor, the Ninety year old Cherisse, whose life experience has taught her how to live and how to love. She immediately goes to work on the young couple, but Steve is not going to make it easy for her. Told from Steve's perspective, the story will have you going back and forth between cheering him on... or wanting to wring his neck!"
