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."

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!

A funny story of two quirky characters who, although opposite in so many ways, fit together beautifully.

"The house had outlived its usefulness." is the first line of this 1972 Anne Tyler novel. Thus the house is introduced as a character in the novel in which the conflict, crisis, climax and resolution will occur. Each of the characters are brilliantly developed and once in the world of the Emersons, I never wanted to leave, just like the protagonist, Elizabeth Abbott.
