Touching story about a daughter and her enstranged mother. Good read.
Great characters and beautifully written.
Everything she writes is worth reading.
I love Elizabeth Berg, her novels are always touching and you really get to know the characters.
Great story. The lives of two sisters which goes back and forth from present day to when they were young teens. very good read
Very well written! I loved it!
Elizabeth Berg is a well-known author. In What We Keep, she has written an intimate story on the universal themes of family secrets, wounded pasts and gradual resolution.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This was my first Elizabeth Berg novel. I will be reading all of them. This novel was so good that i can not part with it, I want all my friends to read it first. This was such a moving novel about mother and daughter and old wounds that still aren't healed. I loved this book. It was totaly worth all the time I spent with it.
A great read. Berg is never dissappointing. This will tug at your heart but will make you feel good & think more of ones relationship with their mother.
Berg writes "chick books" that my husband even likes--this is a great one to take to the beach!
Berg did it again. Consistently writes great reads.
love this author, this one reads very quick, but i did not find it as emotionally moving as some of her others. however, the story itself is very absorbing.
Berg creates very real characters in this quick read. A very compelling story. One of the best I've read in a long time.
A beautifully written story about the threads mothers weave through their children's lives, the painful, joyful and lasting.
well developed characters as usual from E. Berg
I found this book interesting in its juxtaposition of the main character as an adult (going to meet the mother she'd not seen in 35 years) and child (at age 12, when her life took a huge turn). Both points of view were written with great insight and empathy, and the story unfolding was poignant and thoughtful. A story about growing up and love, worth reading.
This is a fine read. As the story progressed I found myself spending more and more time reading it and was a little sad it ended. Very good characterization and equally outstanding writing. I highly recommend it.
A woman prepares to meet with her mother, estranged for 35 years, and thinks back to the year everything changed for their family. It's an honest and sad book about mothers and daughters, and truth and lies, and finding the strength to do what must be done to survive.
I thought this would be better than it actually was.
This book had a lot of strange twists and turns in it and a very surprise ending, but all in all, a good read.
Ginny Young crosses the country for a reluctant reunion with the mother she has not seen in thirty-five years. During the long hours of her flight, she returns in memory to the summer when she turned twelve and her family turned inside out...What We Keep is about ties that are buried but not broken, wounds that are dressed but never heal, and love that changes form but somehow survives.
I had two of this book and have not finished it but it is Beautifully written and touching. I read "Open House" by Berg and loved it.
