I haven’t read an Anne Tyler novel in years and had forgotten how much I love her writing. I read a review of this one in a magazine recently and then spotted it at a bookshop at the airport. So … I bought it even though I had 3 novels on my tablet for holiday reading. It was fabulous and I just loved the main character. I think that’s Tyler’s strength – her characters are so complete and she portrays them so well that you feel like you know them and I felt sad when I finished it. It WAS too short though.
