Ladder of Years, by Anne Tyler

A woman decides she's tired of being taken for granted and leaves her husband and family, hitching a ride and ending up more or less at random in a small town where she starts a new life.

Not as good as Breathing Lessons; although it shares some similar themes, it wasn't as funny (there was humour in there, but no so much) and I think the story was just a bit weak.

Very nicely written though.
