Ten Good Reasons To Lie About Your Age
Widow Sally Lightfoot is trying to follow the sensible advice listed in her self-help book but she misses her husband so much nothing is working. A year later, a friend from Sally's rock chick past sexes up her list considerably. Remember their free love days of the 1970s? Sally must get out there and lose her 'wididity', her born-again virginity, before it's too late. Set on the beautiful traffic-free island of Hydra, Leonard Cohen's old 1960s stomping ground, this is a story of hope and learning to love yourself, to find that inner you that sometimes is lost when we make others' lives more important than our own. A must-read romance for Leonard Cohen fans everywhere.
"Insightful and delightful, full of thoughtful dialogue and exceptional clarity. Sally feels real, like a neighbor or a friend and that makes the story take on a presence of its own. You will get lost in the story and not want to put it down until it is finished." LESLIE WRIGHT, HUFFINGTON POST BOOKS
