Morgan Gower works at Cullen's hardware store in north Baltimore. He has seven daughters and a warmhearted wife, but as he journeys into the gray area of middle age, he finds his household growing tedious. Then Morgan meets two lovely young newlyweds under some rather extreme circumstances - and all three discover that no one's heart is safe.

"An almost flawless story of love...Morgan emerges as a true hero." (Los Angeles Times)
No. I love Anne Tyler's books, but I was disappointed in this one. I didn't find the 'upside' in it as I have in her other books. In all Anne Tyler's other books, I could always find a humorous aspect, but in 'Morgan's Passing' I found it wanting. Perhaps part of this was due to the narrator's performance. There seemed to be a negative undertone in her delivery.
I would have liked more of a positive spin to the story.
