Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A “marvelous romantic comedy” (The New York Times Book Review) from Pulitzer Prize–winning author Anna Quindlen

“[A] wise tale about second chances, starting over, and going after what is most important in life.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

Still Life with Bread Crumbs begins with an imagined gunshot and ends with a new tin roof. Between the two is a wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women. Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the city for the middle of nowhere. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.
 
Brilliantly written, powerfully observed, Still Life with Bread Crumbs is a deeply moving and often very funny story of unexpected love, and a stunningly crafted journey into the life of a woman, her heart, her mind, her days, as she discovers that life is a story with many levels, a story that is longer and more exciting than she ever imagined.

Somewhere between easy and moving.

I enjoyed this read. It wasn't completely heartbreaking or overwhelming but offered enough emotion to keep you turning the pages. I'm ready to look for another one of her book.

Happy ending

Anna Q's first happy ending is a good read especially, for this 60 something. She validates any woman's thoughts of reinvention.

My second Anna Quindlen book (after Black and Blue) and her story telling skills are amazing. On to my third....
