Living Large Late:
A Practical Approach to Enjoying Life
Presenting our romantic, whimsical, philosophical novel:
The Rabbi & the Widow:
The Rabbi & the Widow is "living large late":
Romance and philosophy combine in this engaging, imaginative tale of a grizzled LSU professor Rabbi Baraq Broulliette and Sara, widowed when her husband of 25 years died of cancer and still finding her new single life baffling.
Their story, told by four who love them, brings varied viewpoints to the same problem: Being alone and searching.
Sara, seeking comfort from the religious faith of her childhood, meets Baraq whose own difficult times had left him alone in a world of university teaching, scholarship, and Jewish worship. Throughout a year of counselling, the rabbi and the widow become fast friends, as each finds solace from grief, loss, illness, and the death of cherished loved ones.
How can the rabbi and the widow handle the delicate and mystifying effects of their mutual trust in each other? Can the grizzled rabbi and the lovely widow remain friends? Or will their relationship be a temporary detour on the road back to wholeness and perhaps new romantic possibilities?
The story takes surprising twists as it winds towards a conclusion that neither one could have foreseen.
