Another great read from Anne Tyler
Quite a lot of characters to keep up with but as far as the main character, Rebecca, is concerned, we know her so well and she provokes not just sympathy but an empathy, especially if you are a mature female reader.
There is always a profound sadness lurking beneath the humour and although this was not my favourite Tyler so far, I did thoroughly enjoy the family dramas and typical quirky personalities that Anne Tyler always presents us with.
I didn't realise that Anne Tyler had written this novel in memory of her husband, who apparently died in 1997. I wish I had known this on reading it, as it makes even more sense to me now.
