The Widower's Journey, by Abraham Troyer (author), Stephanie Richardson (narrator)

Abraham Troyer, October 2019

Isaac Hochstetler is a widower, still struggling with grief a year and a half after his wife of 31 years died. He's attending a grief support group, where he's made a friend, but not lessened the grip of his grief much. He has also started volunteering at an animal shelter--where walking the dogs really does help, and he adopts one dog, named Grace.

But he's still feeling lost an lonely, until one night a new woman shows up at the grief support group. She's just moved from Ohio to Pennsylvania, and has been a widow about two years. They talk, he likes her, and he goes home.
The next day, he takes Grace out for a walk, and meets the woman walking her rescue dog in the same park.

The question is, can these two lost, grieving people open their hearts to each other, and to the possibility of happiness.

It's a sweet, charming, short story. Recommended.

I received this audiobook free from the publisher, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
