Fiction. Literature. HTML:BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Elizabeth Berg's Once Upon a Time, There Was You.

In this superb novel by the beloved author of Talk Before Sleep, The Pull of the Moon, and Until the Real Thing Comes Along, a woman re-creates her life after divorce by opening up her house and her heart.

Samantha's husband has left her, and after a spree of overcharging at Tiffany's, she settles down to reconstruct a life for herself and her eleven-year-old son. Her eccentric mother tries to help by fixing her up with dates, but a more pressing problem is money. To meet her mortgage payments, Sam decides to take in boarders. The first is an older woman who offers sage advice and sorely needed comfort; the second, a maladjusted student, is not quite so helpful. A new friend, King, an untraditional man, suggests that Samantha get out, get going, get work. But her real work is this: In order to emerge from grief and the past, she has to learn how to make her own happiness. In order to really see people, she has to look within her heart. And in order to know who she is, she has to remember??and reclaim??the person she used to be, long before she became someone else in an effort to save her marriage.

Open House is a love story about what can blossom between a man and a woman, and within a woman he

Woman learns how to become an independent and self-assured person after her husband leaves her. Good read.

Ya know, I have nospecific explanation for loving Elizabeth Berg. I only know that after reading one of her books, I went back and read them all. And she never let me down once. ( )

I like books like this; of older women who finally find their selves and their way! My older sister was a huge Elizabeth Berg fan - I’ll definitely read more of her stuff! ( )

A sweet, if somewhat predictable, book. Berg reminds me of [a:Anne Tyler|457|Anne Tyler|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1332881249p2/457.jpg] with her simple everyday plot line and quirky characters. I knew where the story was going from the beginning, but it was still a pleasant enough though not an impactful read.

I did laugh when she made a reference to being glad that the elderly woman's purse did not contain at "day-timer". That reference dated the story perfectly...since any current writer would be referencing a "cell phone". My how things change and how quickly. The simpler life of the pre-9/11 world. ( )

It was a love-hate relationship for me and Sam.

I loved her inner dialogue with herself, especially when she would think the absolute worst about someone or a situation and then find out something else and be like "Oh. Uh, nevermind." Don't we all do that?

I hated her and her need to have a man in her life.

The last chapter was icky.

And now, into the library donation box it goes!

You know before you know, of course. You are bending over the dryer, pulling out the still-warm sheets and the knowledge walks up your backbone. You star at the man you love and you are staring at nothing: he is gone before he is gone.
