At a Loss for Words - Diane Schoemperlen

She wasn’t looking for love. As a successful writer with an established career, a comfortable home and a supportive group of friends, her life was full. But then, thirty years after he broke her heart the first time, he walked into a book signing and back into her life. Spurred on by the idyll of a first love made good, they reconnect through emails. But, strangely, love has left her with a nasty case of writer’s block. At a Loss for Words is another brilliant expression of Diane Schoemperlen’s gift for building the minutiae of everyday life into a profound understanding of women, men, love and imagination.

‘There are many laughs in At a Loss for Words that have tears underneath. This a book for those who love words, particularly those who have also loved a person in vain.’ - Mary Soderstrom, Quill and Quire

‘Bittersweet comedy of love and loss.’ - Toronto Globe and Mail
