Still Life with Bread Crumbs

Rediscovery. The title of Anna Quindlen’s novel, Still Life with Bread Crumbs, refers to a photograph by protagonist Rebecca Winter. Rebecca finds herself at age 60 still recognized as a prominent photographer, but her work is selling at a slow pace. Life in New York City is expensive, especially as the cost of care for her aging parents has become a strain. She moves to a cottage more rustic than quaint, and the opportunity for a renewed life presents itself. This novel will appeal to book clubs, especially those comprised of women of a similar age to the protagonist. The novel is a love story, endearing and gentle. If that’s what you like, there’s plenty of it in this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Still Life with Bread Crumbs from
