Description
Follow one woman's inspiring journey in this heartwarming story by the New York Times bestselling author of The Story of Arthur Truluv and Night of Miracles . How often have you wanted to drop everything and just go ? Well, this is exactly what Nan does one day: gets into her car and drives across the country, letting go of her daily troubles and embarking on a trip of self-discovery. For Nan, a mid-life crisis becomes a mid-life opportunity: an opportunity to put herself first. Through conversations with people she meets, letters to her husband, and her diary entries, Nan walks along a path of self-care, mindfulness, and positivity that can reawaken and lift her spirit, as well as transform herself into the woman she wants to be.

display_description "This is not a novel about a woman leaving home but rather about a human being finding her way back."—Chicago Tribune
In the middle of her life, Nan decides to leave her husband at home and begin an impromptu trek across the country, carrying with her a turquoise leather journal she intends to fill. The Pull of the Moon is a novel about a woman coming to terms with issues of importance to all women. In her journal, Nan addresses the thorniness—and the allure—of marriage, the sweet ties to children, and the gifts and lessons that come from random encounters with strangers, including a handsome man appearing out of the woods and a lonely housewife sitting on her front porch steps. Most of all, Nan writes about the need for the self to stay alive. In this luminous and exquisitely written novel, Elizabeth Berg shows how sometimes you have to leave your life behind in order to find it. the pull of the moon
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Elizabeth Berg's Once Upon a Time, There Was You.
Praise for The Pull of the Moon
"Breathtaking . . . [Berg] writes with wry wit and aching lyricism, painting her characters as vividly as anyone writing today."The Charlotte Observer

"When was the last time you thought about running away? . . . In The Pull of the Moon, Berg shares her strength, the wonderful widening of her soul so that we, too, can take the journey in the ease of our chair."Greensboro News & Record
"Berg's gift as a storyteller lies most powerfully in her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, the remarkable in the everyday."The Boston Globe

"Reading The Pull of the Moon is like sitting down for a long, satisfying chat with a best girlfriend. . . . [It] pleasantly encourages readers to recover a little life-embracing enthusiasm themselves."Orlando Sentinel
