This is a great book for all adults, young and old. Well-written, thoughtful, charming. The author is local so we were able to have her come to our meeting. She was very insightful and entertaining.

Loads of laughs

Funny! Most of our club members found this book to be hilarious. A few didn't appreciate the humor. You just have to suspend reality and go with the flow. Have a good time!
