As the book says, to move from loneliness to love means to take a risk, to create the personal environment and strong support system we need no matter what the price." In a society filled with lonely, anxious and depressed people fighting their own variety of stress, Kavanaugh leads them to a new level of self esteem and courage. Dear Abby says: "I have read all of James Kavanaugh's books and given hundreds as gifts. He deserves to be heard by all of America. He will be." The author says: "This is a book of knowing that love is available and loneliness is a loving signal that it is time to find a friend."

James Kavanaugh was ordained and actively ministered for ten years as a Catholic Priest before attending Catholic University in Washington D.C. Working on his second doctoral degree, he wrote an article for the Saturday Evening Post, entitled, "I am a Priest, and I want to marry." The article questioned the practice of celibacy among priests. The year was 1967, the height of the sexual revolution. Although it was written under a pseudonym and even his closest friends and family were not aware of the author, it was received with such commotion and outrage, the secret would not be kept for long. Soon Simon and Schuster was calling for a book deal. Amid personal confusion, James took a leave of absence from the priesthood, packed his VW bug and headed for California to write books.
