When her husband is killed in a hit-and-run bicycling accident, it takes all of Michele Lopez Hanson's strength not to burrow into their bed for the rest of her life. But their kids need her, and she promised herself she'd do the Kona Ironman Triathlon in Adrian's honor, and someone seems to be stalking her family, so she slogs through the pain to keep herself on track.

Honestly in the beginning I had to stop reading it and take a break because Pamela’s descriptions of the characters emotions was so gripping my own emotions were getting to me. I have now found a new author to read. It keeps you guessing until the end and I was not bored for one minute. I’d call it a must read.

Being from Houston myself, there was a touch of nostalgia knowing where she was talking about but even if you didn’t you definitely could picture it. So glad I read/listened to this book.

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office.

Please do not be discouraged by the first bit of this book. Eleanor grows on you. She has lead a very hard and unbelievably abused life, to which most of us cannot begin to understand. This story is about life and love, but not love in the romantic sense. Love for other human beings, our friends. Growing to understand kind gestures and being a friend are very rewarding things. I highly recommend this book.
