She Wanted Something Else. CHAPTER ONE: It was 1924, a Tuesday morning in April. The amusement park had just opened for the season, but the midway was empty because all day it had looked like rain. A tall woman in a long, gray coat walked past the merry-g0-round. A little boy straggled behind her, and two little girls with braided hair ran in circles around them.

Late in her Brooklyn childhood (she was born in 1915), Rose Anne Beech discovers a talent for drawing that later takes her to art school in Philadelphia, where a fiercely demanding and uncompromising teacher elicits the real.

I read "She Wanted Something Else" a few years ago and thought that it was good, but I didn't connect with those . Megan Staffel doesn't seem to think very highly of her readers. The German she uses in the book is a joke

I read "She Wanted Something Else" a few years ago and thought that it was good, but I didn't connect with those characters. In "Notebook" I felt so drawn to the characters-William, Ute, the teenagers, the fat mother-that I read the entire book in one sitting. My husband's grandmother, mother and uncle all survived the bombing of Dresden, so that particular topic resonated for me as well. The German she uses in the book is a joke. She translates "cuckoo" with "rooster", gives the German uncle a woman's name, and invents nonsense like "Sauerkraut Sandwiches".

A first novel of uncommon delicacy and sureness, SHE WANTED SOMETHING ELSE is the story of three connected lives and the delicate shifts, hesitations, and redirections that alter, threaten, and renew the characters' relationships over time. Foremost is Rose Ann, a dedicated painter who never does quite what is expected of her--or even what she expects of herself. Imperious and stubborn, she is caught between the demands of her family and those of her life as an artist. Told from the points of view of each of the three characters--Rose Ann, her husband, Teddy, and her daughter, Alma--SHE WANTED SOMETHING ELSE traces Rose Ann's struggle to be artist and wife and mother. It is the story of three imperfectly suited people and the emotional force that binds their lives together.
