"My best friend Penny's grave has a simple headstone: light gray granite inscribed with her name, the date of her birth, and the date of her death, which was four months ago. Below that, as agreed, are these words: Say it. Penny believed that people didn't often enough admit to what they really felt, and she thought that made for a lot of problems." p. 5, TAPESTRY OF FORTUNES by Elizabeth Berg
Love this passage.
Love this cover.
Love Elizabeth Berg. She can do no wrong for me. Reading her books is like talking with a good friend. I always feel better for it. I just got her book in the mail yesterday and now that the house is sort of clean, I've made a cup of tea and can commence reading.

About the book (from Elizabeth Berg's Website):
A motivational speaker who isn't great about taking her own advice finally does. After a catastrophic event, she moves out of her large, well-appointed house into a house she shares with three other women. After she receives a postcard from a man she never quite got over and last saw many years ago, she decides to take a driving trip to visit him. The other housemates come along, each for her own reason, each with her own agenda. So it's a book about destiny, fate, memory, chance, possibility....
