    more from this reviewer

    I liked this!

    I usually only read non-fictions books but wanted to read something different. If you have a sister(s) you will def relate to this book. Some nights I would try to keep myself up bec I wanted to know what would happen next. A sign of a good book:)

    Understanding Your Mother

    I liked this novel, along with other of Berg's, because it made me look back at some things my own mother did in a new way. Perhaps life wasn't so easy for her either, just like Berg's character in this story. An enjoyable read.

    Good Clean Read

    I love Elizabeth Berg. I'm currently on a mission to read all of her novels. This was among my favorites. It was a quick easy read and many times made me smile.

    Not my favorite Berg book BUT still GOOD!!

    Elizabeth Berg has an incredible talent for making her characters real! When reading her books, I consistently find myself smiling and nodding my head in response to little details in life that she describes so perfectly. In this novel, I felt frustrated with the mother's journey to "find herself"...not something I would have expected from this particular character. At any rate, this is a book that tugs at your heart and keeps you reading.
