The Confession Club: A Novel

We rated this book:


The third installment in Elizabeth Berg’s Mason series, which began with Arthur Truluv, The Confession Club: A Novel contains the same heartwarming, uplifting stories that readers have come to love in the previous books while introducing new characters and revisiting old friends in the small Missouri town of Mason.

The small supper club turned confession club, where local women come together to share food, wine, and their most embarrassing secrets, invite two new members in: Iris Winters and Maddy Harris. Iris has taken over in teaching Lucille’s cooking classes, and Maddy has returned from New York with her daughter, circling back to her home town when worries overcome her in the big city.

Second chances, new hopes, and heartwarming humor abound in this book. Berg strikes the perfect note of sentimental and uplifting, without wandering into the sappy or overdone, in this series, and The Confession Club is no different. Things don’t all work out perfectly for her characters, indeed some things stay quite messy or become deeply sad. But the power of love and friendship, Arthur Truluv’s legacy remains, and that carries the story, and the club, through most everything. This is a book that’s easy to get lost in.
