Heather York is trying to find balance in her life. Sure, her son Jeff is every parent’s dream, but Winn, headstrong and independent, makes being a single mom a real struggle. When a guilty conscience calls Heather to the side of her dying uncle, wheels are set in motion that will change her life forever. Meeting Les in a campground while returning from her uncle’s funeral, Heather discovers that sometimes happiness finds you when you’re least expecting it.
Faith Johnston has written a disturbing, moving tribute to the ease with which we selectively remember the past....for those for whom the journey itself is a thing of joy, The Only Man in the World will satisfy at the moment of reading and will linger long afterward.
