Description

When Joe Davitch first saw Rebecca, it was at a party at the Davitch home. Young Rebecca looked to Joe like the girl having more fun than anyone in the room and he wanted some of that happiness to spill over onto him, a 33-year-old divorce with three little girls. Is she really this natural-born celebrator, joyous and outgoing?

Texte du rabat

Anne Tyler masterfully explores issues of love, loss, family and identity as she tells the story of 55 year-old widow Rebecca, who is asking whether she has betrayed her own destiny as she finds herself in the midst of her husband's endlessly gregarious, extended family. "Out of the emotional confusions spawned by dislocated, dysfunctional families, Anne Tyler has produced, yet again, a scintillating comedy of manners" "Sunday Telegraph".



Résumé
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?
