Abstract:

36-year-old Sophie Stanton has just lost her husband to cancer. But instead of the five stages of grief, there are fourteen: Denial, Oreos, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Ashes, Lust, Waitressing, Mentoring, Dating, Baking, Acceptance, Goodwill, and Thanksgiving. Determined to be a good widow, Sophie nonetheless ends up scarfing cartons of ice cream for breakfast, weeping in the produce section, and showing up at work in her robe and bunny slippers. In no time, she finds she's lost not only her husband but her job and waistline as well. Hoping to reinvent her life, she moves to Ashland, Oregon. However, instead of finding a rugged Sam Shepard kind of guy, she finds herself involved in ever more hilariously confused adventures. Will she drop in a pile, or will she recover?
