Lucy by the Sea

From the NPR reviewer……”Lucy By the Sea is a chronicle of a plague year — the first year of this ongoing pandemic. It captures its disruptions, uncertainties, and anxieties better than any novel I've read to date on the subject. But because it is also a chronicle of Lucy's growing insights into herself, her family, and their changing relationships during this period of enforced togetherness and separation, it is heartwarming as well as somber.”

This latest book by Elizabeth Strout is just as good,  maybe better, than Oh William.  I just loved this book and this author’s style.  I feel as if the author is talking directly to me.  Of course, I listened to this book and the narrator was exceptional.  The story takes place in coastal Maine amidst the pandemic. It has lots of twists and turns but mostly it just mirrors life, love, family, resentments, misunderstandings……the book is a real treasure
