Elizabeth Berg's The Year of Pleasures is about acknowledging the solace found in ordinary things: a warm bath, good food, the beauty of nature, music, and art. Above all, The Year of Pleasures is about the various kindnesses people can provide one another. Betta's journey from grief to joy is a meaningful reminder of what is available to us all, regardless of what fate has in store. This exquisite book suggests that no matter what we lose, life is ready to give bountifully to those who will receive.
"Sandra Burr brings genuine expression to this remarkable story of a woman's adjustment to widowhood. Her clear and easy narration beautifully captures the diverse feelings experienced by protagonist Betta Nolan." ( AudioFile)

Book Review: The Year of Pleasures
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I wasn't really planning to read this book, but I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the way Betta tentatively made new friends and opened her heart and life to new and old friends.
If you’ve listened to books by Elizabeth Berg before, how does this one compare?
I have not listened to other books by her.
Do you think The Year of Pleasures needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I think it would be interesting to read about the store and have the customers take up part of the story.
