In the Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende

A story of three lives joined together by chance–and an overly unlikely adventure involving trying to dispose of a dead body, older people falling in love, digestive issues, and fear of deportation.

The portraits were lovely, the lives–all three of them–difficult and sad without being overly grim.
