** Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen

In Still Life with Bread Crumbs, a once-famous photographer exiles herself to the country to live off the rent of her New York apartment and encounters critters and weather that she had not foreseen. Like a damsel in distress she is saved by a rugged man who can take care of her. The damsel-in-distress part I did not enjoy — but the rest I did, a lot, from the back story of her doomed marriage to a philanderer to her struggles to care for her aging parents, and her late-in-life artistic success.
