Party of One
When widow Annie McGee breaks through grief, she falls flat on her face into loneliness. In a bold move for this private woman, she founds Party of One, a communal table for single diners.
Outside of this venue, she has no intention of getting involved in the diverse lives of the people who join her. Set in her ways and critical, Annie believes she has all the answers she needs for her life—and some left over for others. Her self-assurance is shaken when she realizes the only thing weirder than the quirks of her eclectic tablemates is her fear of losing their company.
Her journey through humility brings her to faith in Jesus.
