Elizabeth Berg recommends
Windchill Summer (2000)
Norris Church Mailer
"THIS WINSOME COMING-OF-AGE NOVEL OFFERS MUCH TO MANY. Cherry, the narrator, is my kind of woman: good-looking, straight-talking, and able to describe what it's like to get amorous when you're wearing ten thousand petticoats. Most important, she's willing to decide for herself what's true."
Sometimes I Dream in Italian (2000)
Rita Ciresi
"Reading this book is like simultaneously attending a wacky Italian family reunion and a sleep-over."
The Woman Who Knew Gandhi (2004)
Keith Heller
"Wonderfully imagined, beautifully written, and enormously satisfying."
Torch (2006)
Cheryl Strayed
"A deeply compelling, wonderfully crafted story."
The Slow Moon (2006)
Elizabeth Cox
"Elizabeth Cox writes with assurance, style, and heart. She also does something that is a reader's delight, which is to take risks-successfully. Anytime Elizabeth Cox writes a book, I'll read it."
Loving Frank (2007)
Nancy Horan
"I admire this novel, adore this novel, for so many reasons: The intelligence and lyricism of the prose. The attention to period detail. The epic proportions of this most fascinating love story. Mamah Cheney has been in my head and heart and soul since reading this book; I doubt she'll ever leave."
My Enemy's Cradle (2007)
Sara Young
"What a story! MY ENEMY'S CRADLE offers intrigue, suspense, compassion, heartbreak and joy. Sara Young writes with the intelligence and authority of an historian, but also with the sensitivity, precision, insight and grace of a poet. I was hooked from page one, and found the ending to be one of the most satisfying I've read in a long time."
The Good Daughters (2010)
Joyce Maynard
"Joyce Maynard has outdone herself in this beautifully written story you'll find hard to put down and impossible to forget."
