Journalist Schulz (Being Wrong) presents a charming and relatable portrait of her late father, in a memoir about processing grief and recognizing and learning from loss by finding new relationships and experiences. She describes the person she knew her father to be and highlights his own losses and findings in his colorful life. Then the narrative gently turns to showcase a burgeoning romantic relationship that overlaps with Schulz’s grief; this development gives readers another character to love. Schulz collects profound insights into love, how relationships develop and grow, and the new things we continue to find in loved ones, even after they’re gone. Is love discovered, uncovered, remembered? For Schultz, it can be all of the above, especially as her relationship with her wife Casey unfolds.
VERDICT Overall, the narrative is somewhat philosophical and perhaps a little cerebral, as it discusses loss and seeking, but it’s full of curiosity and a great deal of love and compassion that readers will relish. Recommended for most libraries and an excellent book club selection.
