One morning, Rebecca wakes up and realises she has turned into the wrong person.
Is she really this joyous and outgoing organiser of parties, the put-upon heart of her dead husband's extended family?
What happened to her quiet and serious nineteen-year-old self, and what would have happened if she'd married her college sweetheart?
Can someone ever recover the person they've left behind?OVER A MILLION ANNE TYLER BOOKS SOLD`She's changed my perception on life' Anna Chancellor `One of my favourite authors ' Liane Moriarty`She spins gold' Elizabeth Buchan `Anne Tyler has no peer' Anita Shreve`My favourite writer, and the best line-and-length novelist in the world' Nick Hornby `A masterly author' Sebastian Faulks `Tyler is not merely good, she is wickedly good' John Updike`I love Anne Tyler' Anita Brookner `Her fiction has strength of vision, originality, freshness, unconquerable humour' Eudora Welty
