This collection of nonfiction essays explores one woman’s journey of reentering the world of dating after getting divorced in her forties. Neither an exposé of online dating practices nor a dating how-to manual, these essays strive instead to examine the amusing, poignant, and often tragic ways in which we humans are aligned in our frailty, our brokenness, and ultimately in our redemptive search for love and higher meaning in life. They are also a reminder that there is much that is intrinsically valuable about this search, even when it is not ultimately successful.
