Synopsis

At seventy-eight, Winnie Easton has finally found love again with Jerry Trevis, a wealthy Chicago businessman who has moved to the small, upstate town of Hartfield, New York, to begin his life anew. But their decision to buy one of the town's biggest houses ignites anger and skepticism—as children and grandchildren take drastic actions to secure their own futures and endangered inheritances. With so much riding on Jerry's wealth, a decline in his physical health forces hard decisions on the family, renewing old loyalties while creating surprising alliances.

A powerfully moving novel told from alternating perspectives, Commuters is an intensely human story of lives profoundly changed by the repercussions of one marriage, and by the complex intertwining of love, money, and family.

This was a wonderful book but has left us hanging. Winnie and Jerry marry in their later years and then they are in a car accident that speeds up Jerry's dementia. Rachel, Winnie's daughter is also struggling with a husband who was in an accident that left him with some brain damage. Avery is Jerry's grandson who is also struggling with drug addictions. The ending leaves us with no answers as to how every one makes out. Perhaps this was done on purpose to go into another book? Hopefully as I really enjoyed this one.
