“BERG KNOWS THE HEARTS OF HER CHARACTERS INTIMATELY, showing them with compassion, humor, and an illuminating generosity.” –The Seattle Times “BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN . . . [Ginny Young] crosses the country for a reluctant reunion with the mother she has not seen in 35 years. During the long hours of her flight, she returns in memory to the summer when she turned 12 and her family turned inside out. . . . What We Keep is about ties that are buried but not broken, wounds that are dressed but never heal, and love that changes form but somehow survives.” –USA Today “COMPELLING . . . Reading [this] book is like having an intimate conversation with a friend who is baring her soul.” –Charleston Post and Courier “TOUCHING . . . WHAT WE KEEP IS SOMETHING OF VALUE.” –San Antonio Express-News BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Elizabeth Berg's Once Upon a Time, There Was You.
