Nora Webster by Colm Toibin. I loved this book. From the first sentence , it moves at a pleasant  leisurely pace. Set in Ireland, Toibin introduces Nora Webster, a widow who has just lost her husband. Her four children have lost their father. Nora is destabilized by grief and yet she has to look after her family in spite of little money. Her extended family both helps and hinders her search for an independent life now that her husband is gone.  Love to hear from anyone who has also read it.
