Summary

Best-selling author Elizabeth Berg has published fiction and nonfiction in The New York Times Magazine, Ladies’ Home Journal, and New Woman. She has been nominated for a National Magazine Award for her graceful, witty writing. In The Pull of the Moon, she alternates letters and journal entries to trace a middle-aged woman’s impulsive, and solitary, drive across country.
Can the middle age years still hold as much promise as the full moon of youth? Nan has no answer to that question, but she knows that the moon of her life is on the wane. As she drives away from home, turning the wheel toward an uncertain future, Nan begins to contemplate her relationships with her husband and her daughter. Slowly, over nights spent in highway motels, and meals eaten in booth-lined diners, she regains a focus in her life that she had given up for lost.
Funny, poignant, and often dazzling, Elizabeth Berg’s novel will instantly appeal to women of all ages. From the moments spent studying the time lines of her body to Nan’s re-examination of what keeps her in her marriage, each word resonates with gentle honesty and growing strength.

Delightful!

This was a summer treat! The story is really well written and easy to follow. Love the style- swapping between journal entries and letters home to tell this marvelous story of a woman in a midlife identity crisis.
