I begin working on the novel I received through a Goodreads giveaway. I'm pretty excited about this one named Tapestry of Fortunes by Elizabeth Berg. I read her book Open House a little while ago because it donned the Oprah's Book Club stamp. I'm not ashamed to say that I am definitely a fan of Oprah's and that is prompted me to read the book. It wasn't necessarily my favorite work of fiction but I didn't hate it by any means. Reading that novel made me even more interested in what else she had out there because she is an accomplished author. Luckily I won the giveaway that probably had thousands of entries. Let's Read!
Synopsis: Cecilia Ross is looking for a change. She has decided to take time off from her job as a successful motivational speaker and sell her home. She moves in to a beautiful old house in St. Paul, Minnesota, complete with a big front porch, a wild garden, a chef's kitchen-and three roommates. The four women are different ages, but all are feeling restless, and want to take a roadtrip to find again the people and things they miss. One woman wants to connect with a daughter she gave away at birth; another wants to visit her long-absent ex-husband; a third woman, a professional chef, is seeking new inspiration from the restaurants along the way. And Cecilia is looking for Dennis Halsinger, the man she never got over, who recently sent her a postcard out of the blue. This novel is classic Elizabeth Berg-a portrait of how women grow through the relationships that define them, and a testament to the power of female friendship.
