Review: While I Was Gone

This book is one for people who love Boston and Massachusetts.

This is also a book that was selected for Oprah’s Book Club years ago.  Again, in my own list of I-finally-got-around-to-it.

This is a coming of middle age life story.  The narrator, Jo, is forced to confront her past when someone from her past shows up in an unexpected context with shocking secrets revealed at the end.

This is a very calm book.  Jo calmly goes through her personal past and her current life.  We all know someone like Jo, perhaps Jo is you reading this.  I didn’t find her hateful or likable, just Jo.  Jo could be anyone.

A great book for settling yourself down into bed.
