Reading Elizabeth Berg's books are like helping yourself to an extra dollop of peach cobbler. There is a sweetness to the characters but also a fragility in the way they let their flaws crumble them and makes them real. A group of women in a variety of ages and situations has a club that meets not to discuss a great book or new food recipe but a confession club where each member takes a turn sharing some deep, dark secret about themselves. Some shock but most get some good-natured ribbing and everyone goes home feeling a bit lighter.
There are marriages in turmoil and a new love that might take hold but all the women and their men feel a tight connection to the town and each other. A feel-good book that will make you want to call that good friend you haven't spoken to in a while.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
