    They seemed like the perfect couple: young, good-looking, made for each other. The moment Pauline, a stranger to the Polish Eastern Avenue neighborhood of Baltimore (though she lived only twenty minutes away), walked into his mother's grocery store, Michael was smitten. And in the heat of World War II fervor, they are propelled into a hasty wedding. But they never should have married.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. The subtle nuances that make Anne Tylers' writing were all the more enjoyable by the reading by Blair Brown. This was not the typical Anne Tyler book about a person's awakening but how typical, flawed people react to life's trials. I got a lot out of the book and of the reading itself. It brought the book to life for me. I could relate to the characters, not being a mirror of me or my life but a compliation of myself and other people that I know.

    Thank you Anne Tyler, thank you Blair Brown and thank you Audible from bringing this book to many "readers" who may not read this book otherwise. I recommend it to those flawed confused people who feel a bit overwhelmed by life's experiences.
