My name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout

Amy My Name is Lucy BartonLucy Barton suffered complications after a simple operation, and stayed in hospital for many weeks. Her husband organised to fly her mother in to be by her side, though she had not seen her for years. During this visit Lucy reflects on her impoverished childhood, her relationships with her family members, her husband and various people she has met. I found it a gently beautiful story about loneliness, enduring love, hurt, resilience and self.
