Dinner With Edward: A Story of an Unexpected Friendship by Isabel Vincent
When Isabel meets Edward, both are at a crossroads: he wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love. Thinking she is merely helping Edward's daughter--who lives far away and has asked her to check in on her nonagenarian dad in New York- Isabel has no idea that the man in the kitchen baking the sublime roast chicken and light-as-air aprioct souffle will end up changing her life.
Dinner with Edward is a book about love and nourishment, and about how dinner with a friend can, in the words of M.F.K. Fisher, "sustain us against the hungers of the world."
