I’ll Be Seeing You

With these reflections, Bergs sheds insight into the experience of caring for a parent. This eloquent book will especially appeal to those in an eldercare role.

The Confession Club

Fans of the series will delight in the familiar characters and setting, and newcomers will find Mason’s charming residents and small-town vibe a comfort. For readers of the author’s other titles and those who enjoy small-town fiction, including the works of Fannie Flagg. [See Prepub Alert, 5/13/19.]


The Story of Arthur Truluv

Recommended for fiction collections of all sizes. ["This life-affirming story is a definite choice for Berg's many fans": LJ 5/15/17 review of the Random hc.]

The Story of Arthur Truluv

In the vein of Fannie Flagg, this life-affirming story is a definite choice for Berg's many fans and anyone looking for a little break from the darker novels that have been so popular lately. [See Prepub Alert, 1/18/17.]

The Dream Lover

Years ago, Berg (Tapestry of Fortunes) urged Nancy Horan (Loving Frank) to write a fictional biography of Sand. Horan told Berg to write it herself. Wisely, Berg took her advice to heart, as evidenced by this beautiful, imaginative re-creation of a brilliant, complicated writer, feminist, romantic, and activist. [See Prepub Alert, 10/5/14.]

Tapestry of Fortunes

Berg's (Once Upon a Time, There Was You; The Pull of the Moon) latest foray into female friendship weaves a mellifluous tapestry of the relationships that make up the fabric of our lives. As always, her writing is spare and lyrical, filled with the elegant description and profound insight that is her trademark, but the story sometimes feels rushed. These characters are delightful and Berg's fans would relish the time to know them better. Still, her writing is luminous. Not her best, but wonderful just the same.

Once Upon a Time, There Was You

This addictive read shows anew what a wonderful writing talent Berg is: strong characters illuminate a tender story about what makes a marriage work (or not), and how a family binds itself together despite things that pull it apart. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/10.]—Beth Gibbs, Davidson, NC
