Roger Folger, age sixty-one, is a recent widower, but the spirit of his wife, Stella, hasn't wandered far. An all-too-corporeal Roger converses at will with Stella's disembodied voice in the privacy of the home they shared for many years-and you can bet Stella talks back. Roger fills Stella in on the latest about their kids and neighbors, while Stella tells Roger what Heaven's like-picture the Ritz-Carlton in Florida, managed by Moses aided by assistant manager Saint Peter. She also worries that Roger is lonely and decides that what he needs is a new woman in his life. But once Roger begins to date, Stella grows jealous. She can't help but wonder what a second Mrs. Folger will mean for her and Roger-both in this world and the next. With his signature wry humor, Buchwald delivers a comic gem of a novel-a guaranteed delight for his many fans.
