Uncomfortable with the fit of her life, now that she’s in the middle of it, Nan gets into her car and just goes, driving across the country on back roads, following the moon; and stopping to talk to people. Through conversations with women, men, with her husband through letters, and with herself through her diary, Nan confronts topics long overdue for her attention. She writes to her husband and says things she’s never admitted before; and she discovers how the fabric of her life can be reshaped into a more authentic creation.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Berg’s gift as a storyteller lies most powerfully in her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, the remarkable in the everyday.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Carrie | 2/16/2014

    " Written as alternating letters and journal entries, this book resonated with me even though I am several years younger than Nan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Joan Horkey | 2/10/2014

    " Usually I love anything Elizabeth Berg writes. Not this one. Maybe because the woman in this book had feelings so foreign to my own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Leslie | 2/4/2014

    " Berg's book "Pull of the Moon" is about a woman who desides to take a break from her life. She goes off on an adventure and leaves her husband and teenage son on her own. She reconnects with the self she's lost in her constant giving to her family without refilling herself. This is a fun book and a good read. Makes me wonder what I would do if I took off from my life for awhile! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Suzyberry | 1/31/2014

    " Elizabeth Berg understands the female being in such an incredible way. This book reads more like a diary...one woman who must leave the past forever or for a time (only reading it will answer that) to find her heart, her soul, her identity once again. Every woman will identify with the deep emotions laid bare in this book. One of her early works, but one of her best. "
