"For a thirty-something Latter-Day Saint Gen-Xer, Todd Landry couldn't have been more stereotypical. He had the perfect family with slightly more children than the national average; a heritage rich with pioneer ancestry; and a four-bedroom house in suburbia heaven--otherwise known as Gilbert, Arizona. But nine months ago, on a night that continues to haunt his dreams, Todd's wife died unexpectedly--and suddenly everything changed. Now, to his utter humiliation, Todd is seeing Dr. Melvin Schenk, a Jewish psychiatrist who requires Todd to blog regularly as a means of breaking through his aversion to therapy. Through his blog posts, Todd reveals his uncomfortable re-entry into the world of LDS singles and dating, the overwhelming odds he faces as a newly-minted single parent, the difficulty of living up to unrealistic expectations, and the crushing realization that the life he once idealized might not have been as picture-perfect as he believed."
