    From the author of the beloved novel Three Junes comes a rich and commanding story about the accidents, both grand and small, that determine our choices in love and marriage. Greenie Duquette, openhearted yet stubborn, devotes most of her passionate attention to her Greenwich Village bakery and her four-year-old son, George. Her husband, Alan, seems to have fallen into a midlife depression, while Walter, a traditional gay man who has become her closest professional ally, is nursing a broken heart.

    Overall

    Ms Glass' characters and scenes are as lively and engaging, as I've come to expect. I cared about them from first acquaintance and looked forward to each new "page". The diversity of living and loving arrangements was elucidating and fun.

    But, just a word of forewarning for Audible listeners...there are LOTS of characters and locations whose lives and times interact and intertwine. This, coupled with the writing scheme that changes narrator/character and "time" frequently, can make it just a bit hard to follow while listening. Plan to back up a fair amount, or some might simply prefer to do this lovely book as a read rather than a listen.
