“There is love in holding,” he’d said. “And there is love in letting go.”
The story follows a widow’s first year after her beloved husband’s death. Elizabeth Berg always writes women’s voices clearly and accurately. You can hear them. You know them. She’s also excellent with likeable characters, details and descriptions. But this book just didn’t provide enough tension or conflict to make it a really good story. No really tough choices, no high stakes. Even for a Berg fan, this one just fell a little flat.
