Publisher's Summary

A delightful novel of one woman's transformative journey, from the best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer. 
Willa Drake can count on one hand the defining moments of her life. In 1967, she is a schoolgirl coping with her mother's sudden disappearance. In 1977, she is a college coed considering a marriage proposal. In 1997, she is a young widow trying to piece her life back together. And in 2017, she yearns to be a grandmother but isn't sure she ever will be. Then, one day, Willa receives a startling phone call from a stranger. Without fully understanding why, she flies across the country to Baltimore to look after a young woman she's never met, her nine-year-old daughter, and their dog, Airplane. This impulsive decision will lead Willa into uncharted territory - surrounded by eccentric neighbors who treat each other like family, she finds solace and fulfillment in unexpected places. 
A bewitching novel of hope, self-discovery, and second chances, Clock Dance gives us Anne Tyler at the height of her powers.

Critic Reviews

“Tyler’s characteristic warmth and affection for her characters are engaging as ever... [They are] all vibrantly portrayed with her usual low-key gusto and bracingly dark humor... Power dynamics are never simple in Tyler’s portraits of marriage.” (Kirkus Reviews)
Clock Dance pulls you right in and keeps on ticking . . . Filled with Tyler’s wry perspective on appealingly quirky, so-called ordinary people . . . Once again, she throws light on the human condition . . . Her novels reassure us that the possibilities for meaningful connection—which so often seem lost in our hectic world—are still out there.” (Newsday)
“A delightfully zany premise . . . Most charming of all is Cheryl, the hilariously precocious 9-year-old who wears majorette boots . . . A tender novel.” (Washington Post)

frustrated

Could not get past the third chapter. The narrator's voice and expression was so irritating that I could not finish the book. Very disappointed.

Narrator was hard to stomach

The children are voiced by an adult. Just plain painful to listen to. The story life suffers in this part also. So far not impressed!
