Second Chance
Life and Love for All Seasons

by Sean O'Brian

published by Sean O'Brian

produced by Sweetgrass Books

  • After losing his wife of 46 years, retired professor Sean O’Brian found himself lonely and in a deep state of mourning. With the help of family, friends, and physical activity, he navigated his way through his grief—and found love and companionship in the process. Along the way, he learned valuable lessons about himself and about relationships. Dating at age 70 comes with an inherent set of challenges, from meeting potential partners to erectile dysfunction. In Second Chance, he shares personal stories of his experiences in the dating scene, which range from humorous to embarrassing to deeply moving.

    O’Brian ultimately finds love and marries for a second time. He generously and openly shares his experiences with the hope that it can serve as something of a roadmap for others who seek meaningful relationships later in life.
