1. "Evvie Drake Starts Over" by Linda Holmes
Recently widowed, Evvie Drake holes up in a friend’s home in Maine, hoping to start over. Dean, a former MLB pitcher in a throwing slump, stays in an apartment in the house and he and Evvie agree to not discuss their personal tragedies. Rules are meant to be broken, though, and soon the two form an unlikely bond. They each have a lot a work ahead of them before they can find the peace they seek.
