The Republic of Love

The Republic of LoveThe Republic of Love 
by Carol Shields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I realized about 3/4 of the way through this book that I had read it before, but since it was at least 20 years ago I am counting it as a newly-read book. 
I enjoyed this novel very much.  It is the stories of an interconnected group of people in Winnipeg who are each trying to figure out how to make a life for themselves and perhaps fit a romantic partner into that life. The characters are all in mid-life (or older) and the weight of their past connections makes things more challenging. I found all the characters appealing in their own quirky ways and especially liked Tom, who has been divorced three times and can't quite imagine how he came to be in this position.  
This is one of my #20booksofsummer2021 and my first finish for the 15th Canadian  book challenge
