Doesn T Mean It S A Bad Book I Was t mean it s a bad book I was expecting better one when I compare it with the author s previous works So I anced and hurt my feet for nothing ShameThanks to NetGalley Random House to share ARC COPY with me in exchange of my honest rev 35 starsThis was a uick read and one that I knew would be sweet and uplifting given the first two books in the series I was not Boku no Hero Academia dj - Osananajimi ga Sugoku Yakkai na Kosei ni Kakatteru disappointed on my return visit to Mason Missouri and with some characters that I connected with in the first two books I go back if Berg writes another My favorite is still the first book The Story of Arthur Truluv and I liked this one than the second book Night of Miracles One of my favorite scenes is the flashback that Maddie whose character appears in all of the novels has about Arthur I remember how how hard it was for Maddie until Arthur and Lucille took her in as a pregnant teen without a soul on her side The confessions of a group of friends at first seemed a little too frivolous and I admit to rolling my eyes in the first chapter but then as Elizabeth Berg A Gypsy Promise does she brings to the forefront the very real and tough things that people face Loneliness infidelity burdens that people carried homelessness ptsd a traumatic childhood coming to terms with who you are afterivorce facing ones age and mortality A group therapy of sorts filled with humor at times friendship and care and Imprisoned with the Alien Rohilian Warrior definitely trust I can t say that a confession club is one I be interested in personally but the friendship and trust and caring was so heartening to see I find that these stories of small towns are usually rich in characters that I cant help but love even the uirky ones reflecting so much that we can relate to I expected that it would be predictable and uplifting as the the first books were but I think sometimes that I read too many sobering and serious books so for me it was a welcome respite All in all it was a good story good

Ilures That s what brings us closer to one another our imperfections I love Elizabeth Berg because her writing often gives a voice to what s in my heart but she says it much elouently than I could Unfortunately of the 3 books in this series this was my least favorite I loved that the club had members of varying ages including women of a certain age However the confessions often fell into the silly stealing make up or the TMI sex lives category and none of the characters are well eveloped enough for me to care There s also a side story with a homeless man that made my eyes rollAlthough The Machine Stops deep issues are raised they were given a light treatment It s sweet and heartwarming and perfect for when you want a predictable sweet read For me it was just too much of both I m the wrong reader for this book It was ok but unmemorable I received aigital copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This is a type of book I on t usually read but Elizabeth Berg s The Story of Arthur Truluv was pressed upon me by a lot of people like stones were pressed upon Giles Corey Just the name Truluv broke my cute meter But unlike poor Giles I was left smiling I was pleasantly surprised I really liked it I gave it four stars and noted that while Berg s writing is so simple it reads like a primer the characters are loveable and it s a uick and satisfying read This is 3 in the series she began with Truluv but it s not necessary to have read the other two although if you re going to pick one pick 1 This book is simple and sweet and there are fond reminders of Truluv and Lucille The women of the Confession Club are kind and well meaning Their confessions made me feel like I ve lived a life of unbridled hedonism since they re mea culping over stealing makeup or kissing a guy in high school who rode a motorcycle And they say things like I learned what you ve got to start with is you Okay they re sheltered As long as I on t have to know who they vote for that s fineThe book is like a marshmallow I never want to be so cynical I can t let go and enjoy a heartwarming book with earnest characters who put money in a swear jar I Academia dos Anjos (Redenção Livro 2) d have to use As a member of two book clubs with only women I see up close how we share and rely on each other And we re the same ages as the older members of The Confession Club Not young any not old but looking own at old like it s a pool she s going to have to ive into soon I m not sure I would be as brave or foolhardy as Iris befriending John But I loved that storyline The writing is gorgeous and there are some wonderful ideas like a psychic Life with My Idiot Family divorce The book reminds me in some ways of Olive Kitteridge We get a variety of characters eachealing with their own
