Anything is possible by Elizabeth Strout

This is a marvelous book about human nature in all its forms. Strout’s simple and direct style is one of my favorites. The book is structured into linked stories from Lucy Barton’s town, a colourful mix of individuals with all sorts of lives and regrets mostly, looking for forgiveness and peace of mind. 57 more words
