Publisher Description

A New York Times best-selling novel of self-discovery and second chances from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Redhead by the Side of the Road
Willa Drake has had three opportunities to start her life over: in 1967, as a schoolgirl whose mother has suddenly disappeared; in 1977, when considering a marriage proposal; and in 1997, as a young widow trying to hold her family together. So she is surprised when in 2017 she is given one last chance to change everything, after receiving a startling phone call from a stranger.

Without fully understanding why, she flies across the country to Baltimore to help a young woman she's never met. This impulsive decision, maybe the first one she’s consciously made in her life, will lead Willa into uncharted territory—surrounded by eccentric neighbors who treat each other like family, she finds solace and fulfillment in unexpected places.

A bewitching novel of hope and transformation, Clock Dance gives us Anne Tyler at the height of her powers.

Clock Dance

Anne Tyler gets it; why people float through life without examining what they really want. She has a lovely way of letting us admire her characters and what makes them human. Clock Dance was one of those novels that make you root for an unfocused protagonist. I only wish Ms. Tyler had made Willa choose her path instead of making us imagine.

Waste of time

This book started out ok- the first 2 chapters- but went nowhere and was a complete waste of time. Stupid content and shallow character development. Horrible.

No surpries

I have read quite a number of Tyler’s books. This was “pleasant”. Nothing more or less. Very predictable, although she is proficient in catching the essence of her characters very quickly.
