Review: The Amateur Marriage

User Review  - Jane Drager - Goodreads

Anne Tyler always writes well, and I've read many of her books, but this one was very difficult to read. I didn't like any of the characters. Basically, it was a story about a family with a black cloud hanging over them, sad and depressing lives. Read full review
