Author Judy Crowell proclaims how love has no expiration date, in new memoir

I only offer the story along with the challenge, and hope that somehow, in the telling, it will help someone.

After the death of her husband, author Judy Crowell unwittingly joined a large sisterhood–a sorority of widows.

In her new memoir, “Widow: A Four-Letter Word,” Crowell embarks on an introspective journey candidly sharing her re-entry into the dating world as a 63-year-old widow. Throughout the book Crowell tackles a pile of disregarded old photos allowing her to reflect on the seemingly random way God plunks men into women’s lives. Laced with both humor and tragedy, Crowell’s story blazes the trail for women and men who are looking to find love again.

“I don’t pretend to have the answers,” Crowell said. “I only offer the story along with the challenge, and hope that somehow, in the telling, it will help someone.”

Author Judy Crowell has long been in the business of love as she worked in the wedding industry for over 20 years. Additionally, Crowell is familiar with the romance of travel, as she has written over 125 travel articles for St. Louis Seasons Magazine, Ladue News and Noozhawk.

“This book is not the story of a celebrity,” said Crowell. “It is an everywoman’s story of loss, hope, survival and love.”
