Seeking the Future in the Past

by James Hanley (Author)

With time to think, Alex realizes not all reconnections need to end with closure, and returns to build a future with one of the women.

Book Description:​

Alex, a divorced man in his mid-fifties, announces that he is escaping the stress and losses of his life by meeting with three women of his youth out of curiosity—but is that the real reason?

Seeking escape from work fatigue and a loveless life, mid-fifties Alex sets out on an adventure to reconnect with three women of his past, telling his incredulous daughters he’s satisfying curiosity, not on a quest to reignite romance. He locates and arranges a visit to the dispersed women. Each encounter with a former girlfriend is bittersweet, bringing back memories, and a recounting of why the relationship had failed. After momentary potential, he returns home alone, disappointed and lamenting ‘what if.’

With time to think, Alex realizes not all reconnections need to end with closure, and returns to build a future with one of the women.
