Summary
Big-city Claire attended grad school, but never imagined eventually living and working in the small college town of Grinnell, Iowa where she now is a writer in residence. 38-years-old and married to Don Lowry, a local boy turned real estate agent, Claire realizes that she's dissatisfied with how her life, her career and her marriage have turned out. Over the course of one steamy summer, both Claire and Don begin to stray, and things culminate during a group vacation (that includes their lovers) in northern Minnesota, where all players contemplate their morality and mortality.
Critique
This family drama novel is complicated and messy but rewarding and magical–just like real life.
