Review from THE PEN AND MUSE BOOK REVIEWS:

"I was rooting for Bev the whole read as anyone can relate to her situation. All of us would want to make it just to prove to our loved ones we can do the job. I even like Frank for his character in the book...I think this is a must read. I enjoyed it."

This book is a wonderful afternoon read - I enjoyed seeing the parallels between this book and my friend Angela.
