This was a very good story about a man getting over his wife, who he was actually talking to when the World Trade Center went down. He has 2 young sons, so it is not going to be easy.

He is helped by two women from his high school class who quickly show up, one who is a psychologist. The other is a very tall woman who he gradually falls in love with.

There is a lot of 'it is not bad to be different' stuff because the psych was a sex change and both women got involved in that world & gays. It was well handled however.

The romance took a while also. The editing was very good with very few mistakes. My one problem was the details of his job was not detailed enough for me. I have just gotten involved with editing the last few months and more details would have been helpful. Normally i would not have cared about it, so it is not really a problem.

I did have a good ending which is one thing I look for. A very good read.
