About the Book:
Olive, Again will pick up where Olive Kitteridge left off, following the next decade of Olive's life - through a second marriage, an evolving relationship with her son, and encounters with a cast of memorable characters in the seaside town of Crosby, Maine. Olive struggles to understand not only herself and her own life but the lives of those around her in the town of Crosby, Maine. Whether with a teenager coming to terms with the loss of her father, a young woman about to give birth during a hilariously inopportune moment, a nurse who confesses a secret high school crush, or a lawyer who struggles with an inheritance she does not want to accept, the unforgettable Olive will continue to startle us, to move us, and to inspire moments of transcendent grace

Elizabeth Strout has done it again. There are very few books I reward with a five star review as I feel a rating that high needs to be something nearly life altering, this book is it. This novel is well written with solid characterization. The imagery is solid and does a nice job putting you into the environment, Maine is like another character in the book.

Readers of classic literature and of just plain old excellent story telling will not regret picking up this book. As I mentioned I am familiar with Ms. Strout's work and will immediately reading anything she writes. Overall the novel will keep you intrigued throughout in what almost seems like a series of short stories woven together. I simply loved this book, highly recommended.

Thank you NetGalley, Elizabeth Strout and Random House Publishing Group for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
