Finally! The last 6 books I've tried to read I was unable to finish due to the convoluted b.s. plot lines.
The Dogs of Babel by Carolyn Parkhurst
Loved it! This book was many things-a story of grief and loss, the story of what it's like to love someone who is mentally ill, the story of a man's search for answers regarding the loss of his wife.
But mostly, the story of how no matter how deep the pain, there is a way to get through it. It may take a while, but it does come.
