    What a marvelous book!

    Once you introduce truth into a room, the room may never be the same again.” And boy, when Vivian Morris enters the scene, everything changes! We first meet Vivian as she begins to share her life story with someone we learn only later she tangentially knows. In 1940, kicked out of college, Vivian is sent to New York City to live with her father’s sister Aunt Peg who owns and runs the Lily Playhouse. During her stay she “grows up”: she works as a costumer for the Lily, she gets to know all the things grown ups do in 1940s Manhattan. She also learns the things that mess up grownups can tear your world apart. Now, at almost 90, Vivian tells her story with grace and gumption. She’s had good and bad times, wins, losses, love, sex, death, anger and “made it up as she went along”. All in all, she’s survived, she’s learned she has to change. Her Aunt Peg may have said it best :”Resist change at your own peril, Vivian. When something ends, let it end.” Not a bad way to end life looking back I’d say All in all, Vivian is at peace with her life and what she has done. And as this book has grown and launched, I’ve seen Elizabeth Gilbert’s transformation reflected within its pages. I first fell in love with Gilbert’s work with “Eat Pray Love” and her other work from there forward to today. I purchased this as a gift to myself for my 63rd birthday and saved it to be my *First Book of 2020*. Never one to be thrown by bad reviews I chose not to read ANY until I’d finished this. I am so excited to hear someone bought the book to do a movie “treatment”. It will be interesting to see how that unfolds. This book checked all my boxes to put it on my used book wish list. Each time I finish one of her books, it will stay with me a while. With maturation as a writer and a human, Gilbert will long be remembered for this book. Can’t wait to see what’s next! Highly Recommended 5/5
