Witty and charming The character of Claire is [a] modern-day Holly Golightly. Claire Byrne is a quirky and glamorous year-old Manhattanite and the wife of a famous, slightly older man.
Claire had thought that she was set for life, but now she must re-immerse herself in the Manhattan dating pool. In order to find love and happiness.
Claire’s husband is a philandering ‘sexologist’ who believes love and sex can’t co-exist. But it breaks her heart when he dies and leaves her a young widow. As she braces herself for her new life alone, Claire can’t help but wonder if her late-lamented was right all along.
