Elizabeth Aguilar has recently released a novel where she explores the nuances of love and relationships in light of the experiences of two people sharing an extraordinary bond. By turns funny and poignant, “One Year with Dicky” (published by AuthorHouse UK) is a story of what it means to love and live in the age of instant messaging and modern communications technology.

Dicky and Lizzie are two people in their 60s who have been living alone for almost 20 years. Their otherwise mundane lives take an interesting turn when they meet, an event which they both acknowledge as being destined by God. The two are vastly different from each other especially on matters of sexuality; modern-day Dicky’s liberal views on sex clashed with Lizzie’s conservative background. Every day Dicky would send Lizzie sexually charged text messages which often made their interactions awkward.

After months of communicating, they slowly chipped away the rough edges of their relationship, sculpting in its place a beautiful friendship. Dicky and Lizzie became very close. However, their happiness is cut short when Dicky experiences a traumatic event that makes him depressed. He isolates himself from everyone, even Lizzie. Could this be the end of their unique bond?

“One Year with Dicky” is a humorous and insightful account of two people rediscovering love and friendship in an unlikely time in their lives.
