Jonathan has not recovered from the ego wound his wife’s departure left upon him several years ago, and he wanders through his days, tormented by minor irritations. But as he’s reading this planner, almost against his will, he is drawn into a life more generous, rich, and varied than his own. Will he ever meet the mysterious “H.” who has changed his perspective?
With warmth and humor, this unusual meet-cute is a delightful reminder of how the plans we make rarely lead the way, but sometimes what happens instead is far richer than anything we could have asked for. It makes perfect sense to this reader that Your Perfect Year was a runaway bestseller when it came out in Germany—this sweet, uplifting story is impossible to keep to yourself.
