    Anne Tyler's Best yet!

    This is Anne Tyler at her very best. As a recent widow I was moved to tears by her prose and felt I knew her characters like my own neighbours. A book full of love and loss, despair and redemption. I loved it.

    A really fun read

    Willa receives a phone call from a stranger, telling her that her son's ex-girlfriend has been shot. She drops everything and flies to Baltimore to look after this woman and her nine-year-old daughter. Willa grows very fond of the child and enamored with the neighbours, so much so that she decides to give up her mean hubby and life in Arizona to start fresh with her new outlook on life! As all of Anne Tyler's book are, it was a really fun read.

    Weird ending

    I usually love Anne Tyler’s books of ordinary people with ordinary lives that one can connect and relate to. In that, this book is no exception but with the non-ending the story seemed pointless. However I was enjoying the book up to then well enough. The tone of the book was of a life lived without meaning and a family disconnected and sad. Not one to normally need a story to have a happy ending but this left me feeling “what was the point of that?”

    Clock Dance

    Anne Tyler never fails to capture the ordinary lives of people all around us. Maybe , even us. She never disappoints. After you’re finished with something “profound “, read this.

    Quick Read Resonates

    I really loved this quick read. Willa's search for community reminded me of my own.
