The Art of Mending by Elizabeth Berg

After quite a few “fluff” books I thought I’d go for something a little more serious. This book certainly fit the bill.

The subject matter is deep and often unpleasant and the book is populated with unlikable characters, sounds great so far doesn’t it?

BUT, the characters have depth and realism beyond what I expected when I first started the book and the writing is interspersed with great lines like this:

“I kept my smile tight to hold back my pride and stuck all my fingers between all my toes for the low pull of pleasure.”

Would I recommend it? Yes.  Not any easy read but a good read.

    I’ve read a couple others of hers and now, based on your comment, I’m going to put this one on my to-read list as well.
