Year of the Lucy has a woman who is mother & housewife, but also a sculptor.  A friend named Lucy either had a very bad breakdown & was institutionalized, or took her own life, so the main character decides to do a bronze statue in her honor. Along the way in the year it takes for her to go from idea to statue, she falls in love with someone other than her husband, and learns some things about what shaped her husband.

No, I don't remember reading that, and I have checked my Anne McCaffrey shelf, I don't own it.
It is only one shelf now, with a double row of books.
I gave a part of my collection that I wasn't going to read again away to a very ill person who couldn't do anything but read anymore.

That's a good use for books that are leaving the collection.

Exactly, it also makes it easier to part with them.

I loved Pern for so long, but the older I get, the cringier the books become. I think I've only reread Dragon Song and Dragon Singer in the last few years.
