Praise for Tapestry of Fortunes "A testament to the power of female friendships . . . Berg strips her writing down to what is essential and takes an unflinching look at lifelong regrets. The characters . . . will settle in your heart."--Booklist (starred review) "Elizabeth Berg has carved out a place as one of America's most beloved chroniclers of female friendship."--Chicago Tribune "Luminous . . . As always, her writing is spare and lyrical, filled with . . . elegant description and profound insight."--Library Journal "An incredibly uplifting and life-affirming story . . . Berg explores the themes of change and personal reinvention with exquisite phrasing, sharply-focused attention to detail, and boundless joy and heart."--Bookreporter Praise for Elizabeth Berg "Truth rings forth clearly from every page. [Elizabeth] Berg captures the way women think--and especially the way they talk to other women--as well as any writer I can think of."--The Charlotte Observer, about Talk Before Sleep "Elizabeth Berg's gift as a storyteller lies most powerfully in her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, the remarkable in the everyday."--The Boston Globe "Berg's writing is to literature what Chopin's ï¿½tudes are to music--measured, delicate, and impossible to walk away from until their completion. [Grade: ] A+."--Entertainment Weekly "A writer whose luminous prose is likely to stay with you a long, long time."--Chicago Tribune "Berg could be creating a new genre. . . . [She] is especially wonderful at depicting the small revealing moments of women's friendships, the offhand sharing of secrets in the grocery store."--Kirkus Reviews "Berg's impeccable prose gives voice to that element in our psyche that enables us to cope with the impossible. . . . Berg writes on a higher plane."--Booklist "One of the most life-affirming writers around."--The Miami Herald "Berg has a gift for capturing the small, often sweet details of ordinary life."--Newsday From the Hardcover edition.
