Nora Webster

Nora WebsterNora Webster by Colm Tóibín
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! It seems like nothing is happening, that you are just reading about the day to day life of a young widow trying to cope with her four kids and finances and navigating society without her husband. But Nora is so complex and real that you want the book to go on and on. By the time I got to the last 75 pages I couldn't put it down and I didn't want it to end.

she thought how easy it might have been to have been someone else, that having the boys at home waiting for her, and the bed and the lamp beside her bed, and her work in the morning, were all a sort of accident.
