Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes

Four Stars

Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes is an entertaining story about a young widow who rents the apartment in her Maine home to a washed-out professional baseball pitcher. There is laugh-out-loud dialogue and poignant insight. The language was stronger than I like, but tended to be confined to one character. The morals reflected societal norms more than I prefer as well, but I think the author brought the book to a satisfactory conclusion.
