Samantha Morrow’s husband has left her, and after a spree of overcharging at Tiffany’s, she settles down to reconstruct a life for herself and her 11-year-old son. Her eccentric mother tried to help by fixing her up with dates, but a more pressing problem is money.

To meet her mortgage payments, Sam decides to take in boarders. The first is an older woman who offers sage advice and sorely needed comfort; the second, a maladjusted student, is not quite so helpful. A new friend, King, an untraditional man, suggests that Samantha get out, get going, get work. But her real work is this: In order to emerge from grief and the past, she has to learn how to make her own happiness. In order to really see people, she has to look within her heart. And in order to know who she is, she has to remember—and reclaim—the person she used to be, long before she became someone else in an effort to save her marriage.

Deeply felt, beautifully observed, and written with perfect emotional pitch, Open House is the unforgettable story of how a woman recreates her life after divorce by opening her house to strangers and her heart to the simple miracle of possibility.

    " Another great book by Berg. I don't get tired of reading her books. This is about a mother and daughter set in the early sixties. This book is fiction but she indicated it was based on someone who had written her about her relationship with her disabled mother. Highly recommend. "

    " Everyone who has been divorced will find something to relate to. I didn't like the woman too much at first....but by the end of the book I was into her journey. "

    " Rather disappointing. Thank goodness it was only a library book! Friends keep recommending this author. I gave her a fair chance and read two of her books. The first was tolerable, and this one was less than tolerable. Oh well...moving on to better books! "
