Acclaimed author Laurie Colwin explores themes of love, marriage, careers, motherhood and friendship in this book that covers the life of late thirty something Jane Louise, an insecure Manhattan book designer recently married to calm, steady, reliable chemist Teddy. Jane Louise, who lived a sort of nomadic existence as a child, struggles to adjust to her new life of marriage and potential children and has a yearning that she can’t put her finger on. Published posthumously, Colwin has wisdom about her writing and a way of making her characters very real and humanly flawed that I find very readable. You continue thinking about her books long after you have finished reading them.
