Rating: 4/5 (Very Good)
This entrancing and deeply searching novel will touch a nerve in every reader. Delia 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.
My Original Notes (1998):
My first exposure to Tyler. Wonderful story, yet quite different. I like her style of writing. Will read more!
My Current Thoughts:
I'm surprised I don't remember anything about this novel, especially since I enjoyed it so well that I immediately picked up another book by Tyler. I'm very tempted to give it a second reading.
