Ordinary Life by Elizabeth Berg.
I don't usually search out short stories, and was not really looking forward to reading a whole book of them, but I was pleasantly surprised. As I knew from novels I'd read, Elizabeth Berg does a really good job writing female characters and making them come alive. Her short stories were no different. The biggest problem came to be when the 'short' stories were longer than I should be sitting and reading.
While I"m not sure if it's because I was just ready to read, I especially liked the first story about a 79-year-old woman who takes a pseudo-retreat to her bathroom for a week. Since I have a pre-schooler underfoot all the time, my bathroom might be just the place for a quiet retreat.
I'd recommend this book, as I enjoyed it very much.
