Read a long time ago...don't really remember it. Here is what I found on Amazon.
Mrs. Pamela Evans lives a lonely new widowhood outside of Baltimore, with only a house full of ticking clocks for company. Then she hires eccentric Elizabeth Abbott as a handyman and both discover that parts don't have to be a perfect match to work.
"Anne Tyler is a magical writer."
LOS ANGELES TIMES
Love Anne Tyler, all her books give the reader such great insight into her characters.
This was another great book from early Anne Tyler. I loved the quirky characters and the way the author describes them and their world..I could not put this one down for long!
Tyler is quickly becoming one of my favorites. This is good story of differences and how people deal with them. A book of varied emotions, and well worth the time.
A funny story of two quirky characters who, although opposite in so many ways, fit together beautifully.
Haven't read this book in a while, but all of Tyler's books are a delight!
Elizabeth Abbott is hired by newly widowed Pamela Emerson to to some handywork around the yard. But soon she is indespensible to Mrs. Emerson.
