This is not a new book… but we read it for my book club and everyone was pleasantly surprised. I say “pleasantly” because I am that member who chooses books outside of everyone’s comfort zone. This was a compilation of short stories that was wonderfully written. Each was a snapshot of a life in transition. The club members gave it an 8.5and they are tougher than Rotten Tomatoes! I’m not normally a short story fan, but this book has changed my perspective. Give it a try. Seriously.
