Rated by Fortune Magazine as one of the best management books in 1991, this business classic and bestseller is recognized as the Bible of Customer Service.

A little mystery, a little romance, some major conflict, an elderly lady who can't talk, and a cute little boy - - I love Peg Sutherland, her characters are lifelike and you really feel like you know them.

Blending new widow-hood, grieving, and finding a way to live, this novel manages to remain lighthearted (even making me laugh out loud at times) while dealing with some very tough issues. I was hooked from the first page, and couldn't put this book down - - Sophie eats Oreos in bed, and ODs on frozen waffles, probably the exact thing I would do in her situation - - widowed in her thirties, she goes to grief counseling, loses her job when she can't keep her mind on her work, becomes a Big Sister, and finds that others need her, providing a reason to get out of bed each day. This book ends good, though not in the way you might expect. PS - There is romance, too!
