The Ballad of West Tenth Street: A Novel (P.S.) by Marjorie Kernan
The Ballad of West Tenth Street:  A Novel (P.S.)

Saturdaychick, January 27, 2011

One of the most beautifully written and completely charming books I've read in years, (though it does have a scene of heartbreaking sadness). The children of a dead British rock star live with their beautiful, grieving and something of an alchoholic mother in the village. When a new and mysterious neighbor takes up residency next door everyone is affected by his friendship and generosity . Highly recommended.
