9780099476467: The Art Of Mending

Is it ever too late to make up for the past?

Laura Bartone looks forward to her annual family reunion with a mixture of excitement and wariness. Every year, she and her siblings return to their parents' home outside Minneapolis to attend the state fair. This year, things are different. As soon as she arrives, Laura realizes that something is not right with her sister Caroline. On their first evening together, Caroline confronts Laura and their brother Steve with devastating allegations about their mother. Taken aback and incredulous, the siblings are unable to reconcile their perception of their childhood. A sudden tragedy forces them to face the past, their own culpability and their need for love and forgiveness.

Review:

"

Praise for Elizabeth Berg:

'Berg oozes warmth, wisdom and generosity of spirit. Her writing is quite brilliant, as soft as a kiss, as sharp as a knife. An American Maeve Binchy, a modern-day Jane Austen, whatever praise you heap on Elizabeth Berg, she probably deserves it.' Anna Maxted

"

"

'Berg knows her characters intimately-she gets under their skin and leaves the reader with an indelible impression of lives challenged and changed.' The Seattle Times

"

"

'Heartwrenching and hilarious. Berg sits somewhere between Anne Tyler and Alice Hoffman.' Chicago Sun-Times

"

"'Maybe Freud didn't know the answer to what women want, but Elizabeth Berg certainly does.' USA Today"

From the Publisher:

‘What a lovely writer. Clever, compassionate and superbly skilled, she writes about her characters so poignantly and perceptively that few can match her.’ Elizabeth Buchan, bestselling author of Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman
