My rating: 4.3
Anne Tyler is the author I go to when I am busy, scattered, need a good book but nothing too heavy and am tired of being in book limbo. I always know she will fill the void. She writes about the quiet lives of ordinary people and this book is no exception. She elegantly captures how it is to be the surviving spouse, trying to return to the ever orbiting world of your ordinary life. This explores, loss, healing, wisdom, growth, reflection and ....well, life.
