Still Life with Bread Crumbs: A Novel -- Anna Quindlen

http://www.amazon.com/Still-Life-Bread-Crumbs-Novel/dp/1400065755/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394125767&sr=1-1&keywords=still+life+with+bread+crumbs+anna+quindlen

A superb love story from Anna Quindlen, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Rise and Shine, Blessings, and A Short Guide to a Happy Life
 
Still Life with Bread Crumbs begins with an imagined gunshot and ends with a new tin roof. Between the two is a wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women. Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the city for the middle of nowhere. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.
 
Brilliantly written, powerfully observed, Still Life with Bread Crumbs is a deeply moving and often very funny story of unexpected love, and a stunningly crafted journey into the life of a woman, her heart, her mind, her days, as she discovers that life is a story with many levels, a story that is longer and more exciting than she ever imagined.

    Not a fan of the romance novels, I guess I shall pass this month.

      This is not a typical romance but is a good love story.

      It's really not a romance.

    I finished the book over the weekend. So glad it was not a sappy romance book, but a look at her journey through all the important relationships in her life.

    I'm still working on getting through the book. I may not make it, but I'm excited to chat about it nonetheless!

    So excellently written, such large pieces of truth in such small words. Refocus the image and angle of the camera and I can see myself in Rebecca's life. If I haven't the gift to write my own story, I am glad that Anna Quindlen writes for everywoman.

    I am enjoying this book a lot more than I expected. I am like Joanie and don't usually read love stories, but this is great!
