I couldn't get into this book and gave up after 70 pages. It's a little slow and too detailed for my tastes.

I could not get into this book at all. I felt like the main character was whining the entire time.

This was so-so. I'm very fussy about my fiction--must be well-written, believable--and this basically met those qualifications. Not sure I would have made the same choices as the main character, and I could not stand many of the people in her life, including her daughter and her long-ago love, who conveniently resurfaces after 25 years. Also can be slow in places.....but decent read nevertheless.

I loved the way this book was written. It is funny and has alot of heart. This is the kind of book you want to curl up with and not stop reading until you have finished. It is a book that you will think about and smile when you are driving down the road after you have finished. This author was well worth the time i spent with her pages.

This is a beautifully written story of a woman's journey to find herself again after the loss of her twenty-five year marriage and her job. Losing them both to her assistant doesn't help. In addition to dealing with her loss, she must struggle to help her two twenty-something children deal with their parent's seperation and father's behavior, as well as caring for her ailing mother. Despite this, this is NOT a depressing book. Rose's feelings are something everyone experiences at some point in their life. But her gradual sense of renewal and purpose is wonderfully written and guarenteed to make you want to stand up and cheer. I have read this book many, many times and loved it every single time, which is the best recommendation I can give it.

Suddenly middle aged Rose finds herself with a husband who wants out of their marriage, who is moving in with Rose's co-worker, and to top all that, she loses her job to this same co-worker! How she picks up the pieces and starts over is a tribute to women everywhere.

I read this book as part of an on-line book club, with the author as one of the co-leaders in the group. I found the story to be enjoyable, very much a story of our times, and it was interesting getting insight from the author herself.
