By: Lynn Steward

This is a wonderful novel for women who are struggling in their lives both with their husbands and careers. It is a book that most women could relate to and perhaps even cry with. I found myself getting very sad for Dana as I read the book.

Dana is a woman who seems to have it all: she has a fantastic job in a large New York department store, lives in a great neighborhood, goes to parties in very prestigious restaurants and cafes, and has great family and friends. But she isn’t happy. Her husband is acting strangely, and she ultimately finds out that he is having an affair. Her career is rocky and things are going anything but right.

So, Dana has to choose what she will do? Will she stay in a dead-end marriage? Will she keep working for a company that is moving her into unethical activities, or will she transcend all of these difficulties and create a happy life for herself, one in which she could be happy and feel fulfilled?

Once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down. It is very inspiring and engaging. It is a book that I know will be read again and again by women. It is bound to become one of those books that are loved and which inspire all women who read it and to create the lives that they want. Lynn’s message is that all women can create a very good life for themselves. What an inspiring message!

I can’t wait to read Lynn’s next book in this series.

Rating: 5 stars
