Description : “A WONDERFUL NOVEL . . . Tyler’s eye and ear for familial give and take is unerring, her humanity irresistible. You’ll want to turn back to the first chapter the moment you finish the last.”
People (Page-Turner of the Week)

“STUNNING . . . ‘Once upon a time,’ the story begins, ‘there was a woman who discovered she had turned into the wrong person.’ . . . With Rebecca Davitch, Tyler has created a character who is brave enough to look back on her life and to imagine herself making different kinds of choices. Brave enough to wonder what honesty looks like, whether there is ever really a single distillation of self that is unshakable and true. . . . Anne Tyler has a talent for spinning out characters . . . who go on living long after their stories end.”
–The Baltimore Sun

“Her characters endear themselves to the reader with their candor and their wit and their simple decency. . . . The charm of an Anne Tyler novel lies in the clarity of her prose and the wisdom of her observations.”
–The Washington Post Book World


“RESEMBLES JANE AUSTEN’S PERSUASION IN THAT IT’S A NOVEL ABOUT SECOND CHANCES . . . The tension that keeps the narrative alive is our desire for Rebecca to get the recognition and respect that we know she deserves from her family, and from herself. It’s always good to have a character to root for.”
–San Jose Mercury News

“Maybe there’s something glorious to be said, after all, for companionship, common cause, and sanctuary. And what there is to say, Anne Tyler has been saying for decades, with gravity and grace.”
–The New York Times Book Review

Description : Rebecca discovers she has turned into the wrong person. At age 53, she realizes that she needs to gain ownership of her future regardless of what her family thinks. She goes back to school, joins a gym, and decides to open doors from her past that she thought she had forever closed. In this novel, Tyler speaks about the value of memories and the immense courage it takes to re-write a life.

Description in spanish: Aunque las patas de gallo ya crezcan junto a sus hermosos ojos, aunque decenas de familiares -hijas, hijastras, nietos y tíos- aseguren que ya no queda tiempo para emprender un nuevo camino, Rebecca se resiste a convertirse para siempre en una persona que no es ella. Ya no le basta con reinventar la cocina tradicional en su salón de banquetes o cuidar de niños que nunca la llamarán abuela.

Rebecca necesita adueñarse de su futuro. Y retoma los estudios que abandonó el día de su matrimonio, se apunta a un gimnasio, compra ropa interior de seda, se atreve a descolgar el teléfono y a marcar un número que creía olvidado.

Anne Tyler, ganadora del Premio Pulitzer y legítima heredera de la gran tradición de narradores sureños norteamericanos, nos habla en esta novela sobre el valor de los recuerdos y el inmenso coraje que se precisa para volver a escribir toda una vida.
