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.
