Description

"Dear Martin, I'm sorry the note I left you was so abrupt.

I just wanted you to know I was safe- I won't be back for a while.

I'm on a trip. I needed all of a sudden to go, without saying where, because I don't know where.

I know this is not like me. I know that,. But please believe me, I am safe and I am not crazy.

I felt as though if I didn't do this I wouldn't be safe and I would be crazy- And can you believe this?

I love you. Nan"Sometimes you have to leave your life behind for a while to see it and really live it freshly again.

In this luminous, exquisitely written novel, a woman follows the pull of the moon to find her way home.

Sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, always honest, The Pull of the Moon is a novel about the journey of one woman - and about the issues of the heart that transforms the lives of all women.

Since I like all my fiction, even women's fiction, to really move along, the pace of this book was occasionally a little slow for me. Beyond that, though, I liked it a lot. Nan's voice is appealing and surprising, and that's quite an accomplishment when drawing a sort of middle-aged everywoman. This has made me want to read more EB. My girlfriends all loved the journey Nan took, and the quirky stops she made along the way; I think many of us wished we could take a similar trip. And the hope she finds near the end of her journey is wonderful and believable.I found the "letters" to Martin to be effective and really revealing about their relationship.

Rather compelling, often humurous journal of a middle-age woman taking stock of her marriage.

Every woman should read this book. Do you ever just want to take off and leave everything behind? We all do.<br/><br/>August, 2011. I don't remember the date I first read this book; maybe 8-10 years ago. I pulled it out this morning and am finding the re-read to be equally as stimulating. Elizabeth Berg really gets to the heart of various thoughts and feelings women have in all the phases of our lives. I still believe every woman should read this book!

Main theme is transition in a woman's life - a 50-year-old woman, Nan, "runs away from home" to find herself as she travels the back roads of America. The story is told via diary entries and letters to her husband and grown daughter. Some happenings stretch credulity.
