Praise for The Pull of the Moon 

“Not a novel about a woman leaving home, but…a human being finding her way back.”—Chicago Tribune

“Measured, delicate, and impossible to walk away from.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Turning 50 seems to turn women crazy. When Nan hits this mark, she hits the road, leaving behind her home and husband. Driving west from Boston, she consults only her own pleasure. And while this sounds easy, it is often arduous for Nan, who can hardly remember what her own pleasure is…The Pull of the Moon is upbeat from beginning to end.”—Boston Sunday Globe

“Breathtaking…[Berg] writes with wry wit and aching lyricism, painting her characters as vividly as anyone writing today.”—Charlotte Observer

“Reading The Pull of the Moon is like sitting down for a long, satisfying chat with a best girlfriend…. [It] pleasantly encourages readers to recover a little life-embracing enthusiasm themselves.”—Orlando Sentinel

“When was the last time you thought about running away?…In The Pull of the Moon, Berg shares her strength, the wonderful widening of her soul so that we, too, can take the journey in the ease of our chair.”—Greensboro News & Record
“Berg’s gift as a storyteller lies most powerfully in her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, the remarkable in the everyday.”—The Boston Globe
