Synopsis

Anna Quindlen, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, Rise and Shine, and A Short Guide to a Happy Life, returns with a love story, and the deeply satisfying story of the changing dimensions of a woman's life. Once a world-famous photographer, known for her iconic image, "Still Life with Bread Crumbs," Rebecca Winter has drifted out of the spotlight, and is now more inclined to think of herself as the Artist Formerly Known as Rebecca Winter. As her income dries up, she decides to leave behind the expensive world she knows in New York City, sublet her apartment, and move to a small, inexpensive cabin in the country, where her life falls into a quieter rhythm. With the help of a local man named Jim Bates, she begins to see the world around her in new, deeper dimensions. At a point in her life when she thought so much was behind her, Rebecca finds herself with a second chance-at life, love, her career, and most important, her understanding of herself. Beautifully told and powerfully observed, Still Life with Bread Crumbs is a love story, a story of a woman's life, and a story of the things we can see - and can't see - when we look at the world around us.
