It made me think of life as possibilities, with both beginnings and endings as never black or white. It was well written and entertaining and I found meaning, true to life, on every page. Brilliant!

I rarely rate the books I am reading or have read.  I make this an exception.  I found the writing to be beautiful...at times like poetry.  The last time i read a book a second time, it was A Tree Grows in Brooklyn when I was 12.  This book I will read again...Thank you, Anna...

Anna Quindlen is a gifted author.  She understands life and I find her writing inspirational.  The writing is so well crafted  and both  meaningful and a fun read.  She just makes you feel better. I will be reading this book many times.

at 60 life sometimes slows down....gets quiet...while internally there is a constant movement of purpose...of upheaval...a change that becomes necessary...persistent in thought...not physically hurried, but mentally and emotionally looking ahead...as far as you can......for as long as you can live...sometimes with fear, dread, question, concern.....while others around you become smaller, sometimes disappearing..leaving, dying...and leaving behind some hope....some thing that gathers you up and propels you...into the rest of your life.....good for rebecca...for jim...for benji, for sarah, for tad.....for me and for you

Written artistically. It is rare to read a book where the narrative style matches the creativity of the characters. Would have given 5 stars if Quindlen had not contrived to let everyone overcome adversity and live "happily ever after".

I liked this book a lot - There are so many possibilities in life and this novel by Ms. Quindlen underlines this in a beautifully written way.

So , I agree with Amanda. Why did Jim kill the raccoon? This book is overrated. It is a lame story with some self-absorbed people who are insensitive to others. Really, how did this book get to be so popular?

I was a little concerned when I first read some reviews on this book; but bought it anyway. The book takes off a little slow, it does jump back and forth, however keep reading it gets better as it goes, and besides you really want to find out how it all comes out in the end. I would recommend it.

I have always been a fan of Anna Quindlen, but this book whose main character is a middle-aged woman trying to re-invent herself and finding a completely different set of values is stunning in its sensitivity. Her decision to rent a remote cabin in a rural community that is equivalent to a foreign country to her brings physical and emotional challenges that she stumbles through very well. Anna Quindlen has written a splendid story that pares life down to its basic best.

As usual, Anna Quindlen's use of the English language and imagery is beautiful. Her understated development of Rebecca's story is both poignant and amusing. It is a book to be savored.

This book came highly recommended, but I didn't enjoy it and stopped reading at page 100.The story never grabbed me.

I did not get into this book at the beginning nor in the middle and when it ended, I had no idea what it was about.  Flat, rambling and very boring.

When I first starting reading the book, my initial reaction was "not another divorced woman who finds romance". There was some of that but it was more about a woman finding her identity and not having to apologize. There was humor and sadness. Good story and so well written.
