Tapestry of Fortunes
Reunion. A friend my wife and I first met four decades ago lives by the advice from C.S. Lewis: “Don’t postpone joy.” Elizabeth Berg’s novel, Tapestry of Fortunes, offers comparable advice to readers. The death of a close friend leads protagonist Cecilia Ross to wonder what she has been waiting for. Berg uses the journey of Cecilia’s reunion with a friend from decades earlier as the motif to explore close relationships and the choices we make about how and where we live. Strong female relationships are unveiled in this short novel, which is sweetly and gently presented to those readers who love wholesome stories.
