Summary
From the inimitable Anne Tyler, a compelling novel about a mismatched marriage -- and its consequences that span three generations. They seemed like the perfect couple -- young, good-looking, made for each other. The moment Pauline, a stranger to the Polish Eastern Avenue neighbourhood of Baltimore (though she lived only twenty minutes away), walked into his mother's grocery store, Michael was smitten. And in teh heat of World War II fervor, they are propelled into a hasty wedding. But they never should have married
Summary
Marrying quickly during World War II after falling in love at first sight, a mismatched couple discovers that their very different personalities and approaches to life are taking a toll on their lives, their relationship, and their family.
