Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen (March 2015)

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.

From the author of One True Thing and Every Last One, is a deeply moving and often very funny story of unexpected love as Rebecca discovers that life is a story with many levels, a story that is longer and more exciting than she ever imagined.
