This is a touching and startling story about a lonely man, Harry Bendiner, who lived a difficult life.
One day an amazing woman appears on the threshold of the house of Harry ... She lights a fire of overwhelming and reconciling love in his heart. Harry's life is filled with meaning and faith, and he is ready without fear to meet a new day to do what he did not have time ...
"Love of all ages is submissive, its impulses are beneficial. And the young man is in the prime of life ... and a seasoned soldier with a gray head. "
Harry is eighty-two already. All would not matter, the strength is enough to meet with a friend Mark and discuss investment.
Money for life in America, he accumulated so much that he himself will not be able to spend. It's about millions of dollars.
Mark is going to his relatives in Israel. Who will Harry remember with his three wives and early departed children? At this age, new friends are rare.
Unexpected joy - a new neighbor in the house, where he lives, came to the old man by chance. The woman is elderly, but smiling and fervent. Dazzlingly red. She will warm the old man like a sun.
Ethel says that eating alone is worse than sleeping alone. Now lunches and dinners are a holiday for Harry. It takes time to tell the sweet lady about the parents, about the poor childhood in a small Jewish town in Poland.
About how he could escape from the persecution of the Nazis in the United States. And about a successful career in America.
Ethel captivated him at first sight. Friendly, kind, cares about him. Harry is even ready to go to her daughter at the far end of the world.
Life became meaningful and radiant. How it is decorated with love!
