On the fifth of July, RL and June go down to the river with a bottle of Johnnie Walker Red to commemorate Taylor's fiftieth and last birthday. Taylor was RL's boyhood friend and June's husband, but after eleven years, June, a childless hospice worker, finally declares she's 'nobody's widow anymore.' Anxious for a new beginning, June considers selling her beloved house. RL, a divorced empty-nester, faces a major change, too, when he agrees to lodge his college girlfriend, Betsy, while she undergoes chemotherapy.

Winslow in love by Kevin Canty( Book )

"Richard Winslow is in a rut. His wife is leaving him, he drinks too much, his once-acclaimed poetry has sunken into obscurity, and he hasn't written anything worth reading for eighteen months. In truth, he hasn't even tried. The offer of a visiting professorship at a small college in Montana hardly seems like the best way to renew his artistic glory, but with his options and his bank account rapidly dwindling, Winslow makes the move. Once there, he rediscovers the forgotten pleasures of fly-fishing and meets a girl in worse shape than he is. Erica is a painfully thin student with a dragon tattooed on her neck. She is also sharp, confrontational, and fiercely intelligent. Their relationship, formed over paper cups of Johnnie Walker in Winslow's office, escalates when they impulsively take off on a road trip in Winslow's prized possession, a classic Lincoln Town Car. Traveling through Utah and Arizona, they forge a bond neither anticipated. Winslow, haunted by thoughts of death, begins to embrace the promise of love and life"--Publisher's description
