Couldn't get through this book...the main character was just, well - too ODD! The story kept jumping all over the place. When the author couldn't think of a person's name to put in a sentence, she would leave a straight line.... I couldn't relate to Jane, the main character...her thoughts were way out there.

A character study as much as it is fiction. An exploration of the life of an unmarried professor of English whose life begins a new journey upon her beloved grandmother's death.
