The Year of Pleasures: A Novel

The Year of Pleasures - Elizabeth Berg Actual Rating 3.5 Stars

I was loving this book until about page 180 (out of 206) and then it went straight down hill. The reasons are spoilers so I won't put them here but that should clue you in that it has everything to do with the plot ... specifically what characters choose to do in those last 26 pages. Other than that I enjoyed the writing and I found quite a few beautiful quotes to copy into one of my notebooks for future re-readings. The book itself is being donated.
