Alison's Automotive Repair Manual is the powerful story of a woman who must come to terms with her life and discover the strength to overcome her grief.
"Barkley steers this one straight into our hearts." (Library Journal)
ALISON'S is both the repair manual of its title and a novel tracing repairs within and among characters. What lingers after reading it-- it's been more than a year since I finished it-- is the gentle affection for a wide range of quirky personalities, including an unforgettable expert in trivia who uses "little known facts" to negotiate relationships.
