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.

This book is magic.

I have recommended this book to all my reading friends.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cecilia, because she was so real. You just knew she loved herself and therefore was able to love others.

Have you listened to any of Barbara Caruso’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't, but I will.

Who was the most memorable character of Tapestry of Fortunes and why?

All of the women together experience what a woman's life really is.

Any additional comments?

I usually never reread a book. There is just too much out there for that kind of redundancy. I have read this book twice and listened to it four times if not more. I am listening to it now. It is like looking at a beautiful quilt and seeing yet something else to be admired about the whole.

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.
