Praise for THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV: “Elizabeth Berg’s characters jump right off the page and into your heart. I dare you to read The Story of Arthur Truluv and not fall in love with Arthur Truluv.” Fannie Flagg; “I don’t know if I’ve ever read a more affecting book about the natural affinity between the young and the elderly than Elizabeth Berg’s The Story of Arthur Truluv. It makes the rest of us—strivers and preeners and malcontents—seem almost irrelevant.” Richard Russo; “Elizabeth Berg reminds us of both the richness of any human life and the heart’s needed resilience.” Jane Hirshfield
“Happy, sad, sweet and slyly funny, [Night of Miracles] celebrates the nourishing comfort of community and provides a delightfully original take on the cycles of life.”—People (Book of the Week)
“Find refuge in Mason, a place blessedly free of the political chaos we now know as ‘real life.’ In Berg’s charming but far from shallow alternative reality, the focus is on the things that make life worth living: the human connections that light the way through the dark of aging, bereavement, illness and our own mistakes…. As the endearing, odd-lot characters of Mason, Missouri, coalesce into new families, dessert is served: a plateful of chocolate-and-vanilla pinwheel cookies for the soul.”—USA Today
“Full of empathy and charm, every chapter infuses the heart with a renewed sense of hope.” —Woman’s World
“Night of Miracles by Elizabeth Berg is comfort food on a frosty day, a welcome reunion with characters we met in Berg’s novel The Story of Arthur Truluv…. Berg stirs our hearts with her palette of heartwarming small-town people, ordinary folks but nonetheless endearing. Simply written, homespun but not soppy with sentimentality, Night of Miracles is a feel-good read that would make a lovely gift featuring a crusty widow who believes in ‘baking from scratch’ for ‘cripes’ sake,’ a spitfire readers are sure to enjoy.”—The Missourian
“Elizabeth Berg’s new novel is a feel-good affirmation of life and love, but edgier and more interesting than the scripts one finds on the Hallmark Channel…. What elevates Night of Miracles is Berg’s crisp and often poetic writing and how effortlessly she weaves together her ensemble cast.”—The Columbus Dispatch
“Berg is a master of the ensemble cast, twining character arcs together, teasing knots apart, and tying the entire plot together beautifully. This will delight and inspire fans of Anna Quindlen and Amy Bloom and anyone who’s ever imagined living in Gilmore Girls’ Stars Hollow”—Booklist
“Mason, Mo., is the enchanting setting for a series of small but life-changing events in Berg’s winning novel…. The language is smooth and the story moves along at a comfortable pace…. This pleasant novel highlights the joys that can come from the little things in life.”—Publishers Weekly
“Elizabeth Berg is a master storyteller and one of my personal favorites. Night of Miracles is full of charming, entertaining characters that tug at the heart.”—Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“The thing about an Elizabeth Berg novel is, it’ll always make you feel hopeful. True to form, Night of Miracles is wise and funny, not shying away from life’s troubles but spotlighting the shining small miracles and pleasures of ordinary days. And, of course, there are delicious cakes.”—Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us
