What We Keep …(a timeless read)

Although the story line is dated (I am way younger than woodstock and hippy clothes) it is a timeless read.

What We Keep


Elizabeth Berg

Berg weaves a tale of a family, broken

a tale of a woman and her sister

who thought they had a “normal” existence

until one day their mother leaves.

of course the mother felt lost

until a neighbor moves in next door

and she discovers that she has talents, and dreams and wishes

and although she does not go about reaching them in a “proper” way

she does what she thinks she has to do to survive

to really live

fast forward 30 some years later and Ginny is on traveling to see her mother who she hasn’t seen in over 30 years

and her sister

who she hasn’t seen in quite some time either.

Heartbreak and misunderstandings fill the book

and eventually the book comes to a fair end.

so I give

another book I tried to read by Berg is

Dream When You’re Feeling Blue

I couldn’t get into it but my mom loved it.

a worthy author to read I will definitely be on the look out for more books by Berg
