Crane Spread Wings by Susan Trott

Susan Trott, author ofThe Holy Man,has now written an ingeniously quirky and completely compelling novel whose compulsively lovable heroine will capture your heart from first page to last. Effie Crackalbee (a.k.a. Jane Croy), the loving, daring, and generous protagonist ofCrane Spreads Wings,is a self-proclaimed Tai Chi warrior who practices the ancient movements that center her spirit even as she sets out to re-create her life. When we meet her, she is Jane Croy, and she has just decided to run away from Alan, her husband of one month, because, as she says, he has misrepresented himself.Hes full of hot air--always spouting off--and Jane hates spouters.Nevertheless, within hours she, too, is misrepresenting herself.When she runs into Gled Saltonstall, the bearish, slightly pudgy single father of an adorable little boy, she becomes Effie Crackalbee--indeed her given name--and immediately signs on as the boys nanny for the summer, neglecting to mention that she isnt as single and unencumbered as she appears. When it turns out that Alan and Gled share the same summer community on the Massachusetts coast, Janes little lie of omission begins to take on enormous dimension.One fib inexorably leads to another, until there is virtually no one in this moving and vastly entertaining novel who doesnt at some point bend the truth, whether out of kindness, self-preservation, fear, or love--because at its heart this is a book about love; and about families, from the most conventional to the most bizarre. By the end of her sometimes dizzying journey of discovery, Effie will have found her balance, creating a new life not only for herself but also for all those she loves--and who love her.
