The Beginner's Goodbye

by Anne Tyler

Aaron does not appreciate women who fuss over him. Crippled in childhood, he has spent his life repelling the efforts of his female loved ones. When he marries, he chooses Dorothy, someone who is not a fusser and not a caregiver.

When Dorothy suddenly dies, 35-year-old Arron is bereft. And confused. And he starts "seeing" Dorothy. Why is she appearing? And what is the true story of their marriage?

A short and tender look at grief and healing. A few hours of peaceful reading.
