Where People Like Us Live, by Patricia Cumbie
A well-written novel aimed really at an adult audience (full as it is with life-changing secrets and the frustrations of adults). This is classic character-centric work -- the people are vivid and the action quite languid. That slow pacing allows us to savor each person we meet but there isn't much to take away from the story. And not really much effort to tie it together.
