Tapestry of Fortunes

(2013)
A novel by

 
In this superb new novel by the beloved New York Times bestselling author of Open House, Home Safe, and The Last Time I Saw You, four women venture into their pasts in order to shape their futures, fates, and fortunes.

Cecilia Ross is a motivational speaker who encourages others to change their lives for the better. Why can't she take her own advice? Still reeling from the death of her next-door neighbor and best friend, and freshly aware of the need to live more fully now, Cece realizes that she has to make a move - all the portentous signs seem to point in that direction.

She decides to downsize her life, which means selling her suburban Minnesota home and letting go of many of her possessions. She moves into a beautiful old house in Saint Paul, complete with a gorgeous garden, chef's kitchen, and three housemates: Lise, the home's owner and a divorced mother at odds with her twenty-year-old daughter; Joni, a top-notch sous chef at a first-rate restaurant with a grade A jerk of a boss; and Renie, the youngest and most mercurial of the group, who is trying to rectify a teenage mistake. These women, each feeling restless in her own way, embark on a journey together in an attempt to connect with parts of themselves long denied. For Cece, that means finding Dennis Halsinger, the college flame who now roams the world as a photographer. Despite being "the one who got away," Dennis has never been far from Cece's  thoughts.

In this beautifully written novel, leaving home brings revelations, reunions, and unexpected turns that affirm the inner truths of women's lives. "Maybe Freud didn't know the answer to what women want, but Elizabeth Berg certainly does," said USA Today, and in Tapestry of Fortunes, her unique insight shines through. With heart and intelligence, Elizabeth Berg has crafted a moving novel, rich in understanding of women - their longings, their loves, their abiding friendships, which weave together into a tapestry of fortunes that connects us all.
