Commuters

About Commuters

• Paperback: 400 pages
• Publisher: Harper Perennial (June 29, 2010)
After losing her husband of many years, seventy-eight-year-old Winnie Easton has found love again with Jerry Trevis, a wealthy, elderly Chicago businessman; their decision, however, to buy one of the biggest houses in the small, upstate town of Hartfield, New York, ignites anger and skepticism in their families. Jerry’s daughter, Annette, fearing for her inheritance, takes drastic action to freeze Jerry’s assets; Winnie’s daughter, Rachel, struggling with her own finances, accepts Jerry’s offer of a loan; and Avery, Jerry’s twenty-year-old grandson, a hotshot chef with a cocaine-fueled past, scouts out Manhattan venues in which to start his own restaurant–with Jerry’s money to back him up.
With so much riding on Jerry’s wealth, a rapid decline in his physical health forces hard decisions on the family, renewing old loyalties while creating surprising alliances. Commuters traces the interwoven stories of Winnie, Rachel, and Avery as each is changed by the repercussions of one marriage, and by the complex intertwining of love, family, and money.

My Review:
This is a great book from a first time novelist. The characters are fantastic, the writing is excellent, and it really gives you a look see into the lives of a dynamic fictional family. I would definitely recommend this book if you like books about love later in life and relationships in general. I am looking very forward to the next book by this amazing author!
