“A genre-bending novel…Stripped to its necessities, expecting Zoë describes the bittersweet collision of a brilliant younger East Coast lady of customers and a filthy rich Southern California businessman. Strangers on web page one, the not likely confederates keep on with separate paths of loss, ache, and emotional desolation that [eventually] intersect…to locate new paths best out of the confusion and purposelessness that threaten to crush them.
