Item Details

This novel begins with an imagined gunshot and ends with a new tin roof. Between the two is a wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women. Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the expensive world she knows in New York City, sublet her apartment, and move to a small, inexpensive cabin in the country, where her life falls into a quieter rhythm. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.

She is simply a great writer, who uses words effectively and beautifully. I've slogged through a lot of mediocre books this summer, and as usual I could not put Anna Quindlen's down. Never an eye-roll moment with her work.

I didn't find this book to be as good as her other ones.

Another page turner from Anna Quindlen, exploring the sometimes painful realization that time passes quickly, changing life, changing those we love, and changing us.

A very enjoyable book to read.

This book is just a delight. Wry, funny, sad, quirky. Anna Quindlan at her insightful best.

Enjoyed reading this book for our women's book club. There are on-line discussion questions that stimulated a nice dialog that encouraged some text to self reflections.
