Fiction by Anne Tyler.
I really love Anne Tyler's characters. They are so REAL. I hate to finish any of her books and say good-bye to them.
This book was no exception; the main character was a wonderfully drawn and relatable woman called Willa whom the reader follows from 1967-2017.
This book was not as perfect as some other I've read by the author; for one thing I didn't feel the title was a good fit. Also I did not really like the ending because I felt it was too abrupt, but that may be just my separation anxiety from Anne Tyler's characters talking.
But obviously I'm nit-picking here, because I have such high expectations.
I also read recently by this author: Vinegar Girl
