About the Book:
On the surface, Lena Spencer appears to have it all. She and her wealthy husband Randall have two wonderful children, and they live a life of luxury. In reality, however, Lena finds that happiness is elusive. Randall is emotionally distant, her son has developed a drug habit, and her daughter is disgusted by her mother’s “overbearing behavior.” When Randall decides that he’s had enough of marriage counseling, he offers his wife an ultimatum: “Be grateful for all I’ve done for you or leave.” Lena, realizing that money can’t solve her problems and that her husband is no longer the man she married, decides to choose the latter.
About the Author:
Jacqueline Luckett is a former sales representative for Xerox. After leaving the corporate world, Jacqueline took a creative writing class on a dare (from herself) and began writing short stories and poetry and never looked back. Jacqueline loves living in Oakland, but travels frequently to nurture her passion for photography and learning to cook exotic foods. She is currently hard at work on her next novel.
This was an over all good book. It is very entertaining and it delves into the women’s point of view on an ending marriage. The main character, Lena, gives her husband an ultimatium and when he doesn’t give into her ultimatium, she womans up. Having gone through something similar, I could definitely relate to and feel Lena’s struggles. I was rooting for her and clapping her on. I definitely recommend this for a great and entertaining read to all the women out there! I give Jacqueline a 4 star rating for her writing skills, characters and the wonderful plot!
