House and Home by Kathleen McCleary

July 12, 2008 at 1:28 pm Leave a comment

I picked up this book because it’s set in Portland, Oregon, which is where I grew up. It focuses on Ellen Flanagan, who is getting divorced and in the process selling her beloved home. The home means everything to Ellen and she keeps trying to figure out ways to get it back. Plus she’s confused by the feelings she having for her ex-husband and the man who bought the house.

This is an okay read. The plot was a little thin for me, but I did enjoy the descriptions of Portland, which rang true to me. I’m curious since the jacket says the author lives in northern Virginia why the novel is set in Portland and what led her to that.
