Author and narrator Elizabeth Berg effortlessly captures the tone and pacing of her Midwestern characters as they face life stages and contemporary social conflict. What started as a dining club evolves into a support group whose only requirement is that the participants be honest in their confessions. Most poignant are the characters' long-term regrets and abuses, which have reawakened after decades in repose, and now keep them from finding fulfillment, joy, and forgiveness. The collection's opening story, which features Iris Winters, who, shockingly, begins a love affair with a kind but troubled homeless vet, carries the most emotional weight. Berg's voice shines brightest when describing this love affair and handles the vicissitudes of growing older in a satisfying and optimistic tone.
