Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Aaron and Dorothy seem an unlikely married couple; a marriage that ends too soon when a tree falls into their sunroom where Dorothy is sitting causing her death. What comprises this story is Aaron’s look at their life together as he grieves for Dorothy. When I read about this latest Anne Tyler book I wondered if the subject would just be too sad. But, I trust this author. And, you’ve got to love a guy like Aaron and all the characters who fill this book. They are so like all of us and will leave you smiling.
