Charlie and Eleanor Thomas made a great team; they were soul mates. Blessed with a special kind of love and caring for each other, they experienced both the ups and downs of married life. Together, through many triumphs and trials, they raised their children, Bit and Stretch.
But when Eleanor dies unexpectedly in her sleep, Charlie is not prepared for the extent of his grief and the prospect of a future without the woman he loved so deeply. His grief and despair send him spiraling down toward an overwhelming depression-until he receives help in finding the healing path from two unexpected sources: his two grandchildren, Teddy and Sarah; and his wife.
Bittersweet follows the Thomas family and the rich tapestry of their lives as they begin to deal with the grief of losing both a wife and a mother. Filled with both bitter and sweet memories, Charlie does what it takes to keep his family together. Eleanor would be pleased.
