An Available Man

An Available Man     By Hilma Wolitzer   Edward Schuyler is a widowed biology teacher living in NJ. He is reserved and kind and  mourning the loss of his beloved Bee. Their grown children observe his loneliness and place a dating ad in the back of a magazine. Edward begins a ride on a rollercoaster of emotions to get back in the dating world in his mid 60's. Dating after death is not what he expected at this point in his life and neither are the teen like feelings that arise with attraction, chemistry and sexual feelings that having been deeply hidden for some time. This story is sweet, funny and witty and an absolute pleasure read. Starting out thinking I did not relate in any way turned into smiles and laughter and hope. Hope for all of us to continue throughout our lives to find love and appreciate its beauty.
