Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Mellow story

Where does Tapestry of Fortunes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As far a story goes, it is great for falling asleep. It is a mellow story about a woman who loses her best friend and neighbor, and, as a result, moves in a house with other women that keep her company. She eventually gets a hold of a former lover and they end up together.

What did you like best about this story?

She took a risk in finding her former lover.

Which character – as performed by Barbara Caruso – was your favorite?

I can't remember her name, but the main character in the novel.

If you could rename Tapestry of Fortunes, what would you call it?

I loved the book and the friendships of the women

I wish the book had gone on and on until I found out about how all the characters were doing. It was a book that made me want to go on a road trip.
