The Widow Waltz by Sally Koslow

the widow waltzGeorgia Waltz has the life. 2 daughters she loves, a husband who she cannot picture life without, and an adorable little dog, Sadie. Life is pretty rosy for Georgia- till the day it isn’t.

When Ben Silver, Georgia’s husband, dies unexpectedly- Georgia and the girls are stunned. With how Ben took care of himself, they expected to have years with him. Georgia, while deeply distraught, knows this: Ben would have made plans to take care of her and the girls in the event of his untimely death. Except- the lawyer can’t find his plans. Money is missing. Georgia is beside herself- and yet knows she has to pull it together.

So Georgia makes a plan. She knows that it’s up to her- she’s got to find a way to make thing work. Cola and Luey also realize that being Daddy’s girls has been a great way to go through life- but that time is over.

With Ben dying, he left behind more questions than answers. Georgia finds that while she may not ever know all the answers to the questions- finding herself, being strong, learning to be independent- those are lessons that Ben’s death has taught her. And that is worth more than the money he should have left her.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This is my first Sally Koslow book. I enjoyed it. Light and fluffy at times- and poignant at others. An excellent book for a book club to discuss- where each person could identify with the different characters.
