Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This entrancing and deeply searching novel will touch a nerve in every reader. Celia Grinstead, 40-year-old mother of three almost-grown children, on a sudden impulse, walks away from her marriage, hitches a ride into the unknown, and settles in a strange new town. But soon after she begins her impersonal, unencumbered new life, fresh responsibilities inevitably accumulate.

Deb Rhodes, May 23, 2013 (view all comments by Deb Rhodes)
This novel explores the landscape of marriage, as well as maternal ties. What would compel the mother of 3 teens to walk away from the emotional security of her long marriage, and motherhood, to begin a brand new life? With her usual love of human foibles, Anne Tyler tells this quirky story with humor and compassion.

What I love best about her novels is that you can always see how her characters grow, glimpsing their true selves perhaps for the first time by the novel's end.
