From the opening graph -- “I knew I could stay in this town when I found the blue enamel pot floating in the lake. The pot led me to the house, the house led me to the book, the book to the lawyer, the lawyer to the whorehouse, the whorehouse to science, and from science I joined the world.” -- I knew I liked Leslie Daniels and her main character, Barb Barrett.

The book isn't chick lit, exactly, and certainly not that that brings to mind Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. But it is about a woman finding herself. Whatever stage of life you're in, surely you can identify with that.

(And don't think I didn't contemplate the feasibility of opening a brothel for women. If you're interested in investing, holler. I have ideas.)
