Redhead By The Side of the Road by Anne Tyler
Micah Mortimer isn’t the most polished person you’ll ever meet. He has his ways and means of navigating the world. He measures out his days running errands for work - his “tech hermit” sign cheerily displayed on the roof of his car - maintaining an impeccable cleaning regime and going for runs 7:15, every morning. He is content with the steady balance of his life. But then the order of things starts to tilt and Micah is confronted with a surprise he seems poorly equipped to handle. A beautifully written off beat love story.
