Book Description

Samantha's husband has left her, and after a spree of overcharging at Tiffany's, she settles down to reconstruct a life for herself and her eleven-year-old son. Her eccentric mother tries to help by fixing her up with dates, but a more pressing problem is money. To meet her mortgage payments, Sam decides to take in boarders. The first is an older woman who offers sage advice and sorely needed comfort; the second, a maladjusted student, is not quite so helpful. A new friend, King, an untraditional man, suggests that Samantha get out, get going, get work. But her real work is this: In order to emerge from grief and the past, she has to learn how to make her own happiness. In order to really see people, she has to look within her heart. And in order to know who she is, she has to remember--and reclaim--the person she used to be, long before she became someone else in an effort to save her marriage.

Picked it up at the Salzkammergut meeting. It's not really my cup of tea, but maybe I can find a new reader at the meeting in Belgium next month. Or at the Nottingham UnConvention.

Great book. I'm very sorry I kept it for so long, certainly after having read it in what .. one or two sittings ?
Shame, should 've travelled earlier.
It is now going overseas to someone who requested it from the VBB.

Oh and, no spoilers there : I would have fallen for King myself ... !

I picked this book from greenbadger's Alphabet VBB. Bloedengel was very generous and sent the book to Texas, along with a postcard and a chocolate bar. Thanks so much for all of the goodies!

This was a little bit hard to get into but it ended up being an enjoyable book. I am ready to pass it on so I will look for opportunities to do so. (i Will reserve this bookd for the General Literature VBB Round 12 sponsored by bookstogive.)

From the back cover:
Open House is the story of one woman't struggle to come to terms with divorce. Berg's graceful prose is laced with clear-eyed insights about the way conventional wisdom colors our perceptions. Her account of how Sam learns to get in touch with her own needs and feelings is deft and inspiring.
