Marriage. The suspense and tension in Elizabeth Berg’s novel, Once Upon a Time, There Was You, departs from how she has written previous novels. Fans will continue to enjoy the ways in which she explores the complexity of our relationships and presents characters that are fully formed and recognizable to readers. In this novel she focuses on a divorced couple drawn together again when their daughter has gone missing. Berg examines marriage, and the ways in which we enter and exit from this commitment. As with earlier novels, readers close the last page with both satisfaction and a wish that there was just a bit more.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
