The Widow Waltz by Sally Koslow

Reviewed by Laura Kay

Georgia Waltz has a comfy life. A fabulous apartment over looking Central park, great daughters, jewels, art and most importantly she is still madly in love with her husband, Ben. But when Ben suddenly dies everything about Georgia's life begins to unravel. After a visit with the family attorney, Georgia and her daughters find out the money--the money is gone and that isn't all Ben was hiding from his family. 

Daughters, Nicola and Louisa (Luey) are no longer sure of what their futures will look like as their whole way of life is suddenly gone plus one of them has a secret! The three women must pull together to make the best of the situation, each finding inner strength. 

I really felt for Georgia. She has just lost her husband and then her whole world begins falling apart. Not only is there no money, but it doesn't make sense why there isn't any money. It just wasn't like Ben. So not only is she dealing with grief, but she is no longer sure what to think of her husband anymore. 

This is a story about finding your stronger self, the self you didn't know you even had. This isn't a high drama page turner, it is a very well written story about characters filled with love, pain and discovery. I know I really connected with Georgia on multiple levels, I could see myself and this made the story more real. I even connected with the girls as they grieved their father.

Don't miss this inspiring, witty and very touching story of THE WIDOW WALTZ.
