You don't always get to start your life over.
Sometimes, life starts itself over for you.

'Charming, hopeful, and gently romantic . . . Evvie Drake is great company.' Rainbow Rowell
One morning, Eveleth 'Evvie' Drake got up, packed her suitcase, and got ready to leave her life - and her perfect husband - behind. But before she walked out of the door, she received a phone call asking her to come to the hospital.
That day, Evvie's new life as a widow began.
Now wrestling with her guilt and grief, Evvie has found her independence, but not the way she planned. Unable to leave the house she once dreamed of escaping, it's clear to her best friend Andy that Evvie needs a change. And Andy might just have the answer. . .
Dean Tenney was a big-shot baseball star, until a bad case of the 'yips' meant he couldn't play anymore - or understand why. An invitation from his childhood friend Andy to stay in Maine for a few months seems like the perfect chance to hit the reset button.
When Dean moves into the apartment at the back of Evvie's house, the two make a deal: Dean won't ask about Evvie's late husband, and Evvie won't ask about Dean's baseball career. But rules have a funny way of being broken sometimes, and as a friendship begins to evolve, will Evvie and Dean be brave enough to let go of the past and start over again?
'I guzzled it up' Pandora Sykes, The High Low Show
