Making a Better World

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

Oscar Perilloux, a middle-age widower with a seven-year-old daughter, decides after some serious reservations to let his estranged elderly mother move in with him after she is kicked out of a retirement home for disciplinary reasons. Though Oscar's brother, a rich car-dealer magnate, wants nothing to do with their mother, he IS dating the woman Oscar secretly desires. What follows is a tale of familial reconciliation coupled with a romantic plotline reminiscent of Pride and Prejudice. Paralleling these developments is a comic subplot involving Oscar's childhood pal who unwittingly finds himself the object of a social-media "pile on" that escalates far beyond anyone's expectations.
