Ritepat I don't remember reading any of Elizabeth Berg. What else has she written that I might remember?
Right now I'm reading a sad, really shocking true story - Orphaned and Abandoned by Evelyne Tannehill.
She was a child in Hitler's Germany during WWII, just a few years younger than I, and it's hard for me to realize the grinding misery those people lived through. We thought rationing was hard...we knew nothing of hardship!

Nina Books by Elizabeth Berg; OPEN HOUSE, tHE YEAR OF pLEASURE, tHE PULL OF THE MOON, DURABLE GOODS, TRUE TO FORM,ALL ARE WELCOME HOME. I read, "Durable Goods." Yes, I too understand what you are saying about living in Germany during WW II. We were so blessed to have been living here and although I think we sort of knew that to be true it's only in retrospect that we really know it..nina

Nina Hi Marian,

Have you read, "The Book Thief?" I get GLOWING messages from my writer friends that they couldn't put it down. One stayed up all night; the other said it was so good she couldn't read another book for two weeks. You might check it out. I just finished the book Claire gave me when I was in Spokane last summer. The writing was terrific, "The Unaccustomed Earth," by the author of THE NAMESAKE. Jhumpa Lahiri. bye, terry
