Mitch Albom's TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE meets Nicholas Sparks, THE BOOK OF WHY by Nicholas Montemarano is an original, arresting story of love and human joy.'Remarkable...as dark and dazzling as a mine shaft studded with diamonds' - The New York Times Book Review Eric Newborn is used to dealing with people whose lives are in crisis; he's the bestselling author of several motivational books, and an inspirational speaker. When Eric's wife dies, he finds that grief renders him helpless. There is no easy cure, no platitude to comfort him, no replacement with which to fill the deep trough of his loss. So he retreats, with his female dog, Ralph, to his isolated home on Martha's Vineyard. Five years later, on a wild, storm-wracked night, a car crashes at the end of Eric's lane and a woman turns up at his door, seeking help. A powerful love story and an evocative exploration of the mechanics of the soul, THE BOOK OF WHY is a tender, thought-provoking novel which also addresses intricate questions about the nature of human joy.
