Interesting, thought provoking story. I appreciate stories with characters over 35!
I loved this book, and I love loaning this book out and watching friends reactions to this book. Most of them have the same opinion as me, and they also would like to knock some good manners into the daughter!
A modern tale of over abundance gone awry. Verfy enjoyable reading
Don't read this book it your easily tramatized over the law of "Unintended Consequenses" and the negative fallout that sometimes accompanies being a "Good Samaritan".
My mother gives me stacks of books and this was one of them. Had never read anything by this author before. I liked the book. It isn't a bad read but not the best I've ever read.
I liked this book. It was a good read!
Utterly charming book, fast read!
Jane Lofton may have grown up a nobody, but she didn't stay that way long.
Jane Lofton may have grown up as a nobody, but she doesn't stay one for long. Not once she figures out that hard work, tenacity and blond ambition are a girl's best friend. Of course, having the right husband doesn't hurt either. But being rich and successful is not all it's cracked up to be. Okay, maybe it is -- but life is still tough, dammit.
Jane is so busy rescheduling her next liposuction, shopping for clothes she doesn't need and bragging about her latest real estate sale that she hasn't noticed the callus forming around her heart. Her husband is screwing around on her, and she talks to her daughter through a therapist. No, life is not perfect.
So what should she do? Jane's not sure, but she figures a drive in her "Bimmer" might help her relax. A broken fingernail momentarily diverts her attention, and when she looks up she sees an eighteen-wheeler bearing down on her. Suddenly, Jane's problems become incidental. She barely escapes with her life, but not before she's promised God, and herself, that she is going to "do good" for the rest of her life.
So how come "doing good" is so hard?
My book has a different cover.
