    This memoir is a lovely collection of essays written by a woman who is still very young at heart and trying to deal with the loss of her husband You d think something like this would be sad, but it s not It s really delightful which seems a strange word for a memoir about widowhood, but her candid honesty about dealing with her new life is very refreshing and often times laugh out load funny She bares her soul and everything else Barbara seems like someone you want to go shopping for antiques with, and then afterwards go out for a margarita or two while she regales you with stories of her horrible online dating experiences I did take off one star for the typos I read the Kindle version and there were typos and places where the chapters ran together with no break and even a spot where the underlying HTML code was visible A minor distraction for a fun collection of essays.

    UnfaithfulBarbara had me laughing so hard that I actually had to wipe tears from my eyes As a widow who had gone through many of these situations and had many of the same thoughts, I found it both comforting and humorous to hear someone else s take on it.

    I laughed so much reading The Unfaithful Widow Fragmented Memoirs of My First Year Alone by Barbara Barth that I forgot to cry Even now as I write this review I struggle with establishing the proper tone What is so funny about losing a spouse The answer nothing However, sometimes we do things that make us laugh at ourselves without ignoring the realities of being alone the author shares some of the peculiar events of her life The book is a series of journal entries divided into seasons beginning with the season her husband died Within each section are tales of her interactions with other people, and the dogs and a few private letters to God The journal entry are given titles such as Things Not to Say to a Widow The Family Tree On Buying Poise Ultra Pads at the Age of Sixty and, the one which I would have been blushing had I not been laughing so much, The X Rated Chapter You don t have to be a widow to appreciate The Unfaithful Widow A mature single woman will fully appreciate the crazy dates the author went on, the questions regarding sex and the day to day problems of life alone Who would not appreciate the dogs It is an easy read, it took me a day, and very enjoyable I recommend it I was given a complimentary copy of this book in PDF format in order to give a fair and honest review.

    As a fellow widow and writer with dogs, who is writing her own widow memoir, I was intrigued by this book As some of my followers know, I lost my life partner and our 15 year old dog in 2015 When I saw that Barth had a similar experience, and published a memoir about it, I wanted to know After reading this book It s certainly not the direction I will take with either my memoir or my first year of life without my guy Dating Hell no but Barbara is a professional acquaintance I was featured on her blog as a writer with dogs a while back , and I appreciate her candidness, her boldness and confidence, and her storytelling ability not to mention her humor One thing that bugged this grammar nerd is Barth s insistence on not using commas she announces this in the introduction of the book, so I was prepared, but still bugged by it I m sorry, I just can t help being bothered by the lack of the Oxford Comma smile But I love you anyway, Barbara.An easy read, and well done Good job, Barbara Barth.

    I did enjoy this book I was not sure I would, afraid it would be a maudlin collection of pity parties Instead, I found a delightful collection of essays displaying the author s slightly twisted and very Southern take on the world after her husband died Situations that had been routine while married were a whole different story as a widow Fortunately, the author has good friends and better dogs to help her get through the difficult first year with her humor intact This book earns an A from me.Parental warning R rated, so do not leave it laying around the house if you do not want it read.FCC Disclosure I was given a copy of the book to review No other compensation was provided and the opinions expressed are my own.

    This chronicles the first year of widowhood for Barbara It s an emotional, tongue in cheek, and refreshing look at how she mourned the loss of her spouse.I really enjoyed this book It s strange how we allow ourselves to be bamboozled into thinking at a certain age a person loses their sex drive and ability to delve into a new adventure alone It s equally ridiculous how much advice friends and family have that is supposed to ensure you move on from mourning within a socially acceptable time frame Barbara blazes a unique path through widowhood and in the end finds the perfect living and sleeping companions.I would highly recommend this book for those who want an entertaining read as well as a manual for choosing your own way to mourn a loved one who has passed.
