Abstract

When widower Ben Meister signs himself up for an anger management class, the last person he expects to encounter is his former third grade teacher, Etta Barrett. While Ben is determined to better himself for the sake of his daughter, Etta—who is required by law to attend the class—is convinced there is nothing she needs to change about herself. Told from the perspectives of both Ben and Etta, their unlikely friendship unfolds into a story of grappling with loss, betrayal, healing, and how we cope when the ones who love us most disappoint us.
