"Cecilia Ross is looking for a change. She has decided to take time off from her job as a successful motivational speaker and sell her home. She moves in to a beautiful old house in St. Paul, Minnesota, complete with a big front porch, a wild garden, a chef's kitchen--and three roommates. The four women are different ages, but all are feeling restless, and want to take a roadtrip to find again the people and things they miss. One woman wants to connect with a daughter she gave away at birth; another wants to visit her long-absent ex-husband; a third woman, a professional chef, is seeking new inspiration from the restaurants along the way. And Cecilia is looking for Dennis Halsinger, the man she never got over, who recently sent her a postcard out of the blue. This novel is classic Elizabeth Berg--a portrait of how women grow through the relationships that define them, and a testament to the power of female friendship"--… (més)

I guess I thought I needed to finish this book because I requested it from the library, but I didn't really like it as well as the other two books by Elizabeth Berg, especially "The Year of Pleasures." I didn't like that Cece and the roommates were in to reading tarot cards and other occult and new age stuff. The plot was a bit thin, and I kept getting the characters mixed up. ( )

While I was interested to find out what happens to the women in the story, the writing was simply too saccharine for me to handle. I got about a third of the way in and couldn't go any further. ( )

While I adore the writing of Elizabeth Berg, and appreciate her slow style of description writing, this book fell short in many ways. I liked the characters of four women who, in mid life, during a pivotal time in their lives lived together in a large house. Unlike college-dorm living, they got along very well.

But, the book lacked a plot. The description of each life and what they longed to find at the end of the rainbow, fell short. Taking a road trip, each of the characters chose a person to visit with whom they had unfinished business. Along the way, the adventures were cute, but not enough to make this an enjoyable read.

I didn't connect with the book, but that doesn't mean I won't continue to continue to read more of her writings. ( )

Although Berg writes beautifully and this was an easy read, it was lacking in substance. In the beginning I was thinking what a nice story. I was rooting for CeCe to find herself in wake of her best friend's death. But the deeper I thought, the more I felt there was so much missing and too many incidences falling perfectly in place all wrapped up with a neat & tidy bow.

I went into this thinking 3.5 stars. In the end, not quite 3. ( )

Another reviewer's comment perfectly summarizes this book: "If you've read "women's fiction" before, you won't find anything new in this pleasant but superficial and rather contrived story." It's a great book to read when you need a break from more challenging fiction and just want to be comfortably entertained. ( )

The gift of how to read the omens and hear my fellow creatures, to see the place where future lives and sing Great Mystery's songs is what I want to share.  It comes from my heart and it is good.  --Jamie Sams, Hancoka Olowanpi
