The Only Man in the World

The Only Man in the World by Faith Johnston


The Only Man in the World

The Only Man in the World is an understated story of what it means to be a woman and how to live a life of integrity and grace amid the changing fortunes of love


Heather York is trying to find balance in her life. Sure, her son Jeff is every parent’s dream, but Winn, headstrong and independent, makes being a single mom a real struggle. When a guilty conscience calls Heather to the side of her dying uncle, wheels are set in motion that will change her life forever. Meeting Les in a campground while returning from her uncle’s funeral, Heather discovers that sometimes happiness finds you when you’re least expecting it. 

Short listed for the 2013 Margaret Laurence Award for Fiction

Faith Johnston has written a disturbing, moving tribute to the ease with which we selectively remember the past....for those for whom the journey itself is a thing of joy, The Only Man in the World will satisfy at the moment of reading and will linger long afterward.
