This Must Be The Place
This is a highly recommended debut novel by Kate Racculia. But, it is difficult to classify: this is part coming of age story, part romance, part mystery, and part literary women's fiction. Lost in grief after his wife's death, Arthur follows a postcard he finds in a shoebox of his wife's keepsakes. The postcard is addressed to a boardinghouse in New York. There he finds Mona, the owner of the boardinghouse and her daughter. From there all three learn more about each other and about life.
