Still Life with Bread Crumbs

by Anna Quindlen

Rebecca Winter used to be a well-known and well-respected photographer. At sixty years of age, she’s divorced and struggling to make ends meet. With significant expenses, she opts to rent out her NYC apartment and live in a cottage in rural New York State for a year.

Of course, a new setting is good for her photography (and her bank account). Likewise, a new setting is also good for her non-existent love life.

Though the novel is quite predictable, it is still wonderful. Rebecca is a very likeable character with very real problems/issues. Readers will instantly cheer for Quindlen’s latest heroine, who absolutely deserves a happy ending.
