Product description

From the Publisher

I can’t resist rewatching movies like When Harry Met Sally or any Nancy Meyers film, so naturally I swooned over this true love story about two longtime friends who take the scenic route to get together.

In this memoir, author Nancy Balbirer writes about how she had quit trying to find love. She turned fifty and had just gone through a painful divorce. She tried dating, but after a series of (often hilarious) relationship disasters, she decided to focus on her writing and her tween daughter. Love was over. She was never getting married again. After an unexpected meeting and revelation, however, Nancy reconnects with Howie, her college friend, and together they start a nine-month whirlwind bicoastal romance.

The relationship and the thirty-year journey that led them to the altar had so many twists and turns (including a pack of Hollywood television writers as part of the cast of characters) that it ended up as a full-page story in the
New York Times. This memoir goes deeper and shares an uplifting and hopeful message, and I believe it will inspire readers to see that love can happen at any age and when you least expect it.

—Carmen Johnson, Editor
