Dinner for One: A Journey to Healing
“Dinner For One is a love letter from a man to his late wife. A way of saying farewell, but never goodbye. It’s a record of love and loss and what it means to be human. Jim Moore is a large man with a large heart, and while that heart has been broken, it is, as Hemingway put it, ‘strong in the broken places.’”
— From the introduction by Charles R. Rutledge
Praise for DINNER FOR ONE: A JOURNEY TO HEALING
“This memoir gutted me in the best way possible. Moore poured out his heart after his wife’s death through a series of blog posts — as a writer, he felt that writing about what he was going through made sense. I, for one, am quite glad he did, and that he listened to the numerous people who told him to publish the collection.
I expected lots of tears going into reading this, and did indeed shed plenty. However, I didn’t expect the moments of humor that made me chuckle, and I was grateful for them to have a way to laugh through the tears. This was a beautiful recollection of their marriage and the struggles Moore faced of continuing on after his wife’s passing. I heartily recommend it.”
