My Name Is Lucy Barton: a Novel
A rich, brief novel written in deceptively simple prose. Like Moonglow, this is another story that takes place at the bedside of a sick person. In this case the patient is Lucy, a young mother recovering from a long illness, who is visited by her long-estranged mother. Over the course of a several days visit, the reader learns why they are estranged, and how far Lucy has traveled to make a new life for herself. To be read in one intense, satisfying sitting.
