The Blunt Widow by Linda McCready
Ruth is an energetic seventy-year old widow with a dry sense of humour and liberal views. Following a difficult period of grief, she sets two goals to find happiness: to write a self-help book on relationships and to date a man who likes to have fun. But the way she goes about achieving her goals is a source of concern to her overprotective and very conservative daughter Brenda, who is still grieving the loss of her father, single and desperately looking for a mate because her clock is ticking.
