2 by Elizabeth Berg
I finished 2 by Elizabeth Berg this week, as part of my Summer Reading Challenge: Durable Goods, and What We Keep. I loved both of these, for many of the same reasons. Berg is so good at capturing the inner voice and thoughts of people, especially young women. She captures the relationship between siblings, and between children and parents. She also captures that moment when you realize your parent(s) are not perfect: that they are human, with their own wants and needs separate from their children. I discovered that Durable Goods has two sequels, so I just ordered the next one. I hope it is as good as the first, but I am delighted that we get to find out more about what happened to these characters.
