What a great title! I was immediately attracted, especially when I realized the author of this upcoming new release was Anna Quindlen. I have been a fan of her books and columns for years.

STILL LIFE WITH BREADCRUMBS is the story of a woman past her prime and still trying to figure out who she really is...a woman who is open to whatever life brings, and a woman being comfortable in her own skin.....Is this about me?!!

Fortunately for readers out there, its about the main character, Rebecca Winters, a woman who ventures into new territory and fends for herself in strange and challenging conditions....

Here's a review from

Still Life with Bread Crumbs

"Still Life with Bread Crumbs begins with an imagined gunshot and ends with a new tin roof. Between the two is a wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women.

Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the city for the middle of nowhere. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.

Brilliantly written, powerfully observed, Still Life with Bread Crumbs is a deeply moving and often very funny story of unexpected love, and a stunningly crafted journey into the life of a woman, her heart, her mind, her days, as she discovers that life is a story with many levels, a story that is longer and more exciting than she ever imagined."


Love stories can be "schmaltzy" (Sappy)..hopefully this is not. Early reviews labeled  it heartwarming and life far, so good.
I want to like it because I like Anna it's on my "To be read" list. (It may be worth reading just to discover what the title means.)

STILL LIFE WITH BREADCRUMBS will be released January 28th. Pre-order from Amazon directly from this blog. Use the Amazon Search Box in the Sidebar.
