year 7, Book 11

11. The Beginner’s Goodbye by Anne Tyler
I was excited to snag a galley of this book at ALA Midwinter as I generally really enjoy Anne Tyler’s books. Plus as a fellow Baltimorean I enjoy the fact that she sets all of her novels in Baltimore. This was a sweet little book about coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. The book begins with Aaron believing that his dead wife, Dorothy, has returned to him a few months after her passing in a freak accident. The book moves both back and forward in time looking at their relationship and how she died while moving forward into the future to the point where Aaron is able to let Dorothy go. I give it an 8 out of 10.
