The Young Widow's Book of Home Improvementis a love story that chronicles Virginia's renovation of the house she shared with her husband, John, and the ways in which that process paralleled her own emotional 'renovation' in the year after his death. The house had a chronic rising damp problem and, over that first year, as the house had to dry out, so did our young widow. The book follows the renovation of the house, from its structural foundations through to the most cosmetic finishing touches. Moving and emotional, this unforgettable memoir also details the humorous and unexpected moments in Virginia's journey.
