John Lewinski is on a plane stuck between two strangers and without enough legroom. He is on the way to southern United States. Middle-aged, a widower and a “fixer” for his Chicago based company, he was initially sent to yet again “fix” problems for another company. Specifically, he is initially being sent to Louisiana to serve as a general manager for one of his company’s food processing factories, and to eventually shut it down. Being in need of a change and a real breather from his grief after his wife passed away two years before, John takes the job despite the risk of being easily stripped of his job. Little does he know that changes and challenges await him in the town of Nacatish – a whole new culture, new insights, and even a new chance at love.
Ron Glaser begins the novel "Southern Comfort" with the jaded tone of a forty-something widower, making mental quips about the things he sees. He is a person who feels he has seen it all – until changes shake him out of his comfort zone. Eventually, it turns into a humorous take on his new experiences that gets the readers rooting for Lewinski, as he struggles to understand his new position, and an environment to which he is at first an alien. Moreover, the romance bubbling in the background is also as slow and sweet as the life he is discovering in Louisiana. Glaser’s book offers the hope that life will give us what we need at the exact moment when we need it. And this is regardless of whether we think it is too late for anything to happen in our lives. This book is an entertaining read!
