Tristan Martens, a retired entomologist, is shaken to find his mother's sewing table in a NY antique shop. Only Tristan knows of the truth of the scrawled inscription on the bottom of the table. He embarks on a sheme to buy it, even though Cora Lowenstein, the shopowner, insists it's not for sale.

This is a heartrending story of an old man taking his last chance the struggling toward an elusive redemption and the even more distant hope of love.

This book was a bit slow to start but I found the characters somewhat endearing. The character of Cora could have been a bit more likeable - I found the protagonist, Tristan Martens, interesting and the story complex, though the book seemed, overall, to be a bit labored. I'll give it a "3".
