At 78, Winnie Easton has finally found love again with Jerry Trevis, a wealthy Chicago businessman who has moved to the small, upstate town of Hartfield, New York, to begin his life anew. But their decision to buy one of the town's biggest houses ignites anger and skepticism - as children and grandchildren take drastic actions to secure their own futures and endangered inheritances. With so much riding on Jerry's wealth, a decline in his physical health forces hard decisions on the family, renewing old loyalties while creating surprising alliances.
A powerfully moving novel told from alternating perspectives, Commuters is an intensely human story of lives profoundly changed by the repercussions of one marriage, and by the complex intertwining of love, money, and family.

This captured me
Commuters is well-paced, fluid and captures the family drama of circumstances that I never expect to encounter, but were interesting to confront in Emily Tedrowe's writing.
Some of the character development proceeded in ways I would not have expected.
He kept to a rhythm that enhanced some of the care the author took in setting the story out, things I would have missed if I just blasted through it, as I do some things I read.
It's more character-based, and it presents itself comfortably, so it engages you over time.
Definitely worth the time to listen to the author, as set forth by the narrator.
