Dear Life - Alice Munro - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Dear Life:

Stories of small-town life in Ontario, Canada.

My favorite Alice Munro quote from the book:

"People have thoughts they'd sooner not have. It happens in life."

Questions to ponder while reading Dear Life:

Have you ever wanted to be more than you are?

Who has altered the course of your life?

My review of Dear Life:

Easy to read and engaging.

Relatable characters and themes.

Everyday stories for everyday life.
