Nora Webster by Colm Toibin
I know, this sounds unbearable, but it is not. It is well told and while the story itself is one of a slowly unfolding grief, it is so well written that the reader is swept along with the story, feeling what the character feels. Nora is very likable. She doesn't have much in her corner other than her innate goodness, but that is enough, and while things do not go her way much of the book, the reader is squarely in her camp.
