9780099476474: The Year Of Pleasures

A woman rediscovers meaning in life - a rich and deeply satisfying novel by the bestselling author of The Art of Mending and Open House.

When Betta Nolan's husband dies, she honours a promise she made to him to move to a small town and start a new life. Without minimizing her great sorrow, she nevertheless attempts to find pleasure on a daily basis. The Year of Pleasures is about deliberately acknowledging the solace found in ordinary things: a warm bath, good food, the beauty of nature, music, art found in museums and in gardens. Above all, it is about the various kindnesses people can and do offer one another. Betta's journey from grief to joy is an inspiring reminder of what is available to us all, regardless of our life circumstances. It suggests that no matter who we lose, life can still give bountifully to those who will receive.

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)

"We loved this American family tale with its well drawn characters. It gripped like the best of thrillers" ( Bella)

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
