Elizabeth Berg’s newest is about Cece, a motivational speaker, and her friendships, Tapestry of Fortunes has a romantic thread but mostly it’s about Cece and her best friend, Penney, and later about a new set of friends.
Cece decides to make changes in her priorities – travel more, work less, and downsize. She sells her house and moves into a house with three other women.
The book is also about change and renewal when one’s circumstances take an unexpected turn. Cece and her roommates take a road trip in order to deal with unresolved relationships – driving from Minneapolis to Winona and Des Moines and Cleveland, stopping along the way to visit diners, bowling alleys and oddball museums.
Berg writes with customary directness and immediacy.The reader gets a motivational boost and a bit of bibliotherapy, too.
