This novel follows an eccentric named Morgan as he bumbles through his life, putting on one costume after another, one persona after another, in an effort to discover who he really is. It¿s not him but the woman who falls in love with him who discovers that, though. A quiet, entertaining read.

This is the story of Morgan Gower who has 7 daughters and manages one of his wife's family's hardware store. The beginning of the book showed promise -- Morgan lets people think he is a doctor and assists in the emergency delivery of a baby -- but it took a little bit too long to get going and I had to put it down at about page 40. Normally, I love Anne Tyler's books, but this one just didn't do it for me.
