3.00 · 1 ratings · Published: Jan 21st, 2011 {{ book.ratingTitle }}
When widow Sally Lightfoot hits 50 she joins the Land of the Invisible where even street charity chuggers avoid her. So her crazy, rock chick friend's challenge to get back out there and lose her wididity, her born-again virginity, falls on deaf ears. Why would she want to go through the dating hell her daughter Ami was going through? With added flabby bits? The chances of a stray suddenly-single Daniel Craig type passing her way were next to zero anyway. Let alone one who’d be interested in a short, mixed-up 50 year old who had not only misplaced her waistline but was still madly in love with her dead husband.

But when Sally braves a solo holiday to the traffic-free Greek isle of Hydra, 60s home of Leonard Cohen and island of choice for affluent old hippies, a chance encounter with a man of her own age, singing Leonard Cohen songs to the tourists, awakens parts of Sally that she'd forgotten she ever possessed. If she could, she most definitely would. But why would he? When beautiful, moody Ami turns up, he pays Sally more attention. For all the wrong reasons.

A tender, moving Truly Madly Deeply meets Shirley Valentine story of a widow’s journey from grief to acceptance to moving forwards in her life in a world where sex is everywhere but death is still the great taboo.
