He thinks hes old. He knows hes fat. He watches too much television. And his only son, Seth, is leaving home. It is the summer of 1999, the year you could experience a solar eclipse if you traveled to Istanbul and stayed clear of the earthquakes taking place in the region. Mel, however, remains at his desk in Asheville, North Carolina, where hes finishing out his tenure at a research facility that has lost its luster, its focus and its funding. As cut-backs and layoffs abound, a younger, female colleague has been promoted into the position Mel once coveted.

A comet seeker at heart, Mel now hides out in his tiny, unimportant office, awaiting retirement with no clear plans, alone with his clumsy cynicism. Every month he doles out the majority of his paycheck to his ex-wife- whats left after that covers his sons expenses.Enter Sara, an old, homeless woman who gives Mel a blessing in exchange for some food. Enter Rose, the bosss mentally ill sister, story teller and cross-stitcher supreme. Throw in the love and concern of Mels old friend Jack, add Seths constant prayers, and see if a man can change.Artfully crafted with surprising twists and subtle humor, Mels story is one that delightfully reminds us to count our blessings, to believe in ourselves and, most of all, to believe in each other.
