Review:

"Sixty-year-old Rebecca Winters is having a midlife crisis. Once an iconic photographer, her fame, and sales, have diminished over the years, and money problems have reached a crisis point. She's long divorced, her son is grown, and she is lonely. To save money, she sublets her Manhattan apartment and rents a ramshackle cottage in the country, where, unexpectedly, she learns about life and herself, rediscovers her love of photography, and connects with Jim Bates, a down-to-earth roofer. Narrator MacDuffie perfectly conveys Rebecca's worries and self-doubt, her increasing attraction to Jim, and her ultimate sense of confidence and peace. She also creates memorable and believable voices for the other characters — particularly for garrulous Sarah (a village baker) and manly Jim. A Random House hardcover."
