Good enjoyable book. I like books with an older heroine. It is a gentle love story without all the drama of youth. Simple easy read of personal growth without knowing it was needed.

Rebecca is "past her prime," as a post-feminist photographer who is also flat broke. She's hoping that a year renting out her fancy NYC apt. and staying in a cheap rental in the country will set things right, both financially and professionally. I loved the first paragraph, where she's awakened by a gunshot at 2:00 in the morning. That, however, is her city understanding. The country reality is a raccoon caught in a cage in her attic. The cage has been put there by the neighborhood handyman, who's considerably younger than her 60+. She learns, however, that friendship, and love, aren't just a product of city sophistication. As with all Quindlen books, Rebecca grows and changes. Character driven books are my favorites, and Quindlen always delivers. In spite of the wild beginning, it sagged for a bit after that, or I'd have given it a complete 5 stars. She gets better and better, though. Or perhaps it's just that this book is about a woman closer to my age than some.

a nice easy read. First book I have read by this author; I find her style concise and effective, and I it has a good message.

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.
