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.

    Story
    "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?

    Mellow Loneliness

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Decent Escape Read"
    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Berg and/or Barbara Caruso?

    Yes, Berg has always been a go- to author for me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Elizabeth Berg? Why or why not?

    Yes, her books don't always leave me breathless, but they are solid for entertaining me.


    Did Barbara Caruso do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but her voice is older than I picture the characters in my head.


    Do you think Tapestry of Fortunes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I think she summed them up.
