The Year of Pleasures

Elizabeth Berg

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Elizabeth Berg’sOnce Upon a Time, There Was You.

In this rich and deeply satisfying novel by the beloved author ofThe Art of Mending, andOpen House, a resilient woman embarks upon an unforgettable journey of adventure, self-discovery, and renewal. 

Betta Nolan moves to a small town after the death of her husband to try to begin anew. Pursuing a dream of a different kind of life, she is determined to find pleasure in her simply daily routines. Among those who help her in both expected and unexpected ways are the ten-year-old boy next door, three wild women friends from her college days, a twenty-year-old who is struggling to find his place in the world, and a handsome man who is ready for love.

Elizabeth Berg’sThe Year of Pleasuresis about acknowledging the solace found in ordinary things: a warm bath, good food, the beauty of nature, music, friends, and art. “Berg writes with humor and a big heart about resilience, loneliness, love, and hope. And the transcendence that redeems,” said Andre Dubus aboutDurable Goods. And the same could be said aboutThe Year of Pleasures
