When 36-year-old Sophie Stanton's husband dies of cancer, she desperately wants to be a graceful, composed Jackie Kennedy kind of widow. Alas, Sophie is more of a Jack Daniels kind. Adding her job and her waistline to her list of things lost, she moves from L.A. to Ashland, Oregon, prepared to defy the dismal weather and be rescued by Sam Shepard's twin. Instead, she finds an embittered 13-year-old girl with a fascination for fire, a job as Salad Girl at the local French restaurant, and an alarmingly cute actor who Sophie wished she didn't quite trust so much. Listeners will laugh and cry along with Sophie as she proves to the world and herself that she can recover from something devastating with darkly comic humor and her own type of class. Good Grief is the perfect audiobook for anyone who has ever been heartbroken, lost someone they've loved, or eaten too many Oreos. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this book in one night. I wasn't expecting it to draw me in so much, but I got so absorbed in it. The characters were so well developed and the storyline was believable. I wish Lolly Winston would write many more novels. "
