A year after her husband, Dan, dies, novelist Helen Ames still can't write—and can't do much else, either, since Dan took care of everything. She hovers over her grown daughter until the accountant stirs her from her stupor: Where, he asks, is the $850,000 Dan borrowed from their savings? The mystery resolves quickly, but Berg's insights into the human condition—upper-middle-class division—make this a charming read.
