The Soul Searcher: a middle aged adventure

Widowed, last kid off to college, menopausal and just qualified for senior coffees at McDonalds… What next! How many life changes can Libby O’Malley handle all at once? Luckily, she has a wicked sense of humor even if it causes her to have an accident from time to time. She’s seeking new purpose in her new life. She won’t have to look far, because her next big thing is looking for her. David Baynard, a handsome stranger, eleven years younger than Libby just showed up in her rural hometown. Now he is everywhere she turns – her library, her dance class, the front door of her home in the Pine Barrens … It is an unusual man who sees past the love handles, crow’s feet and grey hairs of a mature woman and perceives the depth of courage, wisdom and compassion she has earned through decades of being a wife and mother. David is an unusual man. He knows what he needs – a women like Libby to help him get his soul back. Her ability to make him laugh is a bonus. David desires Libby’s love. Only then can he trust her with his secret that caused him to lose his soul. If Libby helps David, the cost could be high, as much as the loss of her own soul.
