Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
In the small coastal town in Maine, everyone knows Olive Kitteridge, the retired school teacher, who plays a leading or subsidiary role in many lives. She has the uncanny ability to see into the hearts of others, discerning their triumphs and tragedies, while not always seeing her own life as clearly. For instance, she doesn't see that her own son feels tyrannized by her or that her stoic husband stays with her not out of love, but out of a sense of duty.
