An Eligible Man

An Eligible Man

His Honour Judge Christopher Osgood is utterly unprepared for life on his own when his wife dies. He is completely overwhelmed by a desperate loneliness and he finds himself bewildered by anything from the absence of clean pyjamas to the dress code of his daughters.

But as the months pass, he discovers that, as an attractive and eligible widower in late middle age, he is much in demand. Lucille mothers and seduces him, Sally offers friendship and Jo introduces him to her stylish town and country life – but with which one will he find the happiness he has lost and the contentment he is seeking?
