The Unfaithful Widow by Barbara Barth
This chronicles the first year of widowhood for Barbara. It’s an emotional, tongue-in-cheek, and refreshing look at how she mourned the loss of her spouse.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s strange how we allow ourselves to be bamboozled into thinking at a certain age a person loses their sex drive and ability to delve into a new adventure alone. It’s equally ridiculous how much advice friends and family have that is supposed to ensure you move on from mourning within a socially acceptable time frame. Barbara blazes a unique path through widowhood and in the end finds the perfect living and sleeping companions.
I would highly recommend this book for those who want an entertaining read as well as a manual for choosing your own way to mourn a loved one who has passed.
