Description


A self-anointed spinster at fifty-one, Myra Lipinski is reasonably content with her quiet life, her dog, Frank, and her career as a visiting nurse. But everything changes when Chip Reardon, the golden boy she adored in high school, is assigned as her new patient. Choosing to forgo treatment for an incurable illness, Chip has returned to his New England hometown to spend what time he has left. Now, Myra and Chip find themselves engaged in a poignant redefinition of roles, and a complicated dance of memory, ambivalence, and longing.

Praise For…


USA Today A touching novel.

Atlantic Monthly Vital connections are Berg's primary concern. Readers of her earlier novels will hear echoes in the broad themes of Never Change...This book is about the wisdom and closeness that crisis can bring. The narrative road that leads to them is funny, poetic, and moving.
