When is a marriage worth saving and when is it best to let go? When do half-truths turn into full-blown lies? When does betrayal end and passion begin?

Say When is a compelling, complex novel that takes readers into the heart of a modern marriage where companionship and intimacy, and denial and pain, so often collide. “Of course he knew she was seeing someone,” begins the story of Frank Griffin, a man who’s willing to overlook his wife’s infidelity—he would let her have this, this thrilling little romance—for the sake of keeping his family intact. But when the forty-year-old Ellen requests a divorce on the basis that she has finally found true, romantic love, Griffin must decide whether to fight or flee…or search elsewhere for the kind of life he always dreamed of.

With Elizabeth Berg’s trademark blend of rare insight, raw emotion, and hard-won wisdom, Say When is a work of startling revelation that no reader will soon forget.

    " That's it Elizabeth. Two books of yours I read...two stink-a-roo's. I can't handle anymore. Open House sucked, but it was world's better than this piece of crap. What a horrid waste of precious moment's of my life. Will they get back together?? Will they chose the new person?!?! WHO CARES! And the kid! Good LORD what a brat she is! I have a 9 year old daughter, so I can speak from experience...8 year olds don't talk the way this little brat did. Such a pointless book. Peace out Ms. Berg...it was...well...boring while it lasted. You're just not my cup of tea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 2/16/2014

    " I usually enjoy Berg's books, but with this one I found myself skimming to the end to see the conclusion which I assumed. I really didn't become emotionally invested in the characters the way I normally do with her books. "

    " This was the worst Elizabeth Berg novel I have ever read. I hated all the characters, thought they were pathetic and sniveley. Sorta surprised I made it through the whole thing. Not recommended. "

    " I usually like Elizabeth Berg's books very much. This one - not so much. Couldn't get into the characters or the plot. Glad that I'm done with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 8/23/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. Revier | 7/24/2012

    " great piece! Well done. marriage and divorce are the themes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 2/3/2012

    " I like a lot of Berg's books, but I found this one rather light-weight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 8/9/2011

    " Usually like Berg's books, but this was depressing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellen | 1/21/2011

    " I just didn't care about the characters. It seems like some other Berg book I read, only it was from the husband's point of view. One thing the author does do well is that the characters ooze emotions, and they always grow and learn throughout the book. Over all just okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dottie | 7/23/2010

    " Good book. However, it was pretty much one-sided view even though it was written in the third person. I would have liked to know what the wife was thinking and feeling. Disappointing in that respect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie Miller | 2/27/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 7/15/2009

    " This is not my very favorite Elizabeth Berg novel ever, but some of the passages regarding marriage/long-term relationships are so spot on that I think I might need a copy to keep. I think Berg writes everyday life so very, very well. "

    " The second Elizabeth Berg novel I've read. Another pleasure. "
