Overview


Married when she was barely 19, Betty Auchard went straight from her parents home to her husband's bed. When she loses Denny to cancer after almost 49 years of marriage, widowhood forces Betty to find out what she can do on her own. She has a lot to learn, having never been single before.

These short, upbeat, inspiring stories tell us how this spunky septuagenarian survives-she decides to dance instead of sitting on the sidelines. Betty laughs and cries her way through grief and, ultimately, comes to see her situation as normal. "None of us is going to get out of this alive, and someone is always going to be left behind feeling sad."
