CLOCK DANCE / Anne Tyler

Willa Drake is a kind, meek, lonely person who is restless. Her condescending husband has no real time for her and her grown sons maintain their distance. One day, she receives a frantic call from a stranger telling her that her son’s ex-girlfriend, Denise, is hospitalized and that Denise’s young daughter is in need of care. Although Willa has never even met them, she decides to travel across the country to Baltimore to be a surrogate  grandma if only for a little while. In Baltimore, she integrates herself into their lives and befriends the neighbors. When Denise verbally attacks her, she feels she must leave, but she is filled with doubts. Very thought-provoking.     Val 9/11/19
