finished reading

I really liked this book. It's the story of Rebecca Winter, age sixty, reflecting on her life as a once-renowned photographer. Her life is at a crossroads and she takes an unexpected path. Although I am not at all like Rebecca, I understand her. I appreciated how the setting caused her vulnerability. How a somewhat jaded and formerly feted woman is lost in the wilds. I liked the secondary characters, too. And I'm not sure which romance I appreciate more--the dog, Jack, or Jim.

This is the June selection for my book group and I'm looking forward to discussing it. There's much to talk about.

I love Anna Quindlen, and this was one of the best books I read last year. So glad you enjoyed it!

Anna Quindlen is reliably wonderful, isn't she? I haven't read her in a while, and I should. I know what you mean about "getting" her characters. When I read One True Thing, I felt rather connected to the daughter, even though on the surface our lives are dissimilar.

I don't recall reading Quindlen before. Might have to give her a try.
