it was amazing

This gets five stars because it really drew me in. I could relate to Joanna in that her family has left her alone full time, and while it is normal for your children to leave, to have your husband gone most of the time isn't any fun. And she keeps thinking to herself, you can leave. So she actually does, and as anyone knows, something like that takes a lot of courage. And she goes to the last place where she thought she might be happy and finds a job and begins to build a new life for herself without feeling super sorry for herself. I liked her strength. In the meantime, we get the perspective of her husband Paul, who is at first just downright annoyed that she is "doing this," and then later, when he loses his job, discovers he didn't really like himself all that much either. The ending wasn't trite either.

It was funny, I had the Nate Berkus show on while I was in the kitchen and this author was on the show wanting to have her office redone. And something about her struck me, and I downloaded her book. Definitely a good read.
