On Turpentine Lane

51BOpNpWBtLI have enjoyed Elinor Lipman in the past, but haven’t read anything of hers in a while. On Turpentine Lane is a quick read and not too taxing. We begin with Faith, who has returned to her hometown to work in the alumni office at her alma mater. Subsequently, she buys a falling-apart home while her fiance is walking across the country to find himself. Things then start going wrong with the house and also in her work and love life. Of course, things turn around by the end. This is light-hearted read, perfect for the summer.
