Two years after her beloved husband's death, Sally Lightfoot, 50, is ready to age gracefully. With added chocolate. Her friend's advice to get out of the house and lose her 'wididity', her born-again virginity, before it's too late is firmly dismissed. Nobody can replace Dom. And why would she want all the dating fuss, bother and trauma that her daughter Ami is going through? With added flabby bits? But Sally hadn't reckoned on meeting Loro, a Leonard Cohen busker who sings Suzanne to the tourists on the Greek island of Hydra. Realising that if she wants something she has to go for it, Sally finally plucks up the courage to leave her lonely comfort zone to face the possibility of humiliation and rejection square on. She sets herself up for a fall. Will he? Or won't he?
