Maggie Moran's mission is to connect and unite people, whether they want to be united or not. Maggie is a meddler and as she and her husband, Ira, drive 90 miles to the funeral of an old friend, Ira contemplates his wasted life and the traffic, while Maggie hatches a plant to reunite her son Jesse with his long-estranged wife and baby. As Ira explains, "She thinks the people she loves are better than they really are, and so then she starts changing things around to suit her view of them." Though everyone criticizes her for being "ordinary," Maggie's ability to see the beauty and potential in others ultimately proves that she is the only one fighting the resignation they all fear. The book captured the Pulitzer Prize for literature in 1989.

And to be honest, I didn't really like it very much. It was not bad, but somehow... boring. It had it good moments, but for my taste these are way to rare. None of the characters moved me enough to really care. Maggie got on my nerves, to Ira I found no access.
But nevertheless I finished it on my first attempt, so it can't be too bad, because if I didn't like a book, I wouldn't finish it through.
