I do enjoy Fern Michaels books very much!!!I have read all her books. I was looking forward to reading Balancing Act. But to my amazement I found two books inside published in 1983. I am sure there are people out there who would enjoy reading these books. It would have been nice to have it stated that these are reissued books!!!! So I think the books were great when I read them the first time!!!

I really wasn't expecting two entirely different stories. Just when you are getting into the story it ends and another story starts. I had pre-ordered this book because I usually love F. Michales and so I did not get to pre-read any pages. My fault

I am afraid this is not one of Fern Michaels' better books. It seemed to me very shallow with too intense love scenes. I don't remember her other books containing those. Maybe I am just getting too old and enjoy different types of books more. This was an inexpensive book and I guess you get what you pay for.

Not as good as I thought it would be. It ended too soon. Too much passion in words. I did like the courage of the mother. It's made me think.."this is what I need to do". Since my husband passed with cancer my older son and my mom try to control my life.NOT ANYMORE. Thanks Fern Michaels.Gonna set my goal now.

To me this was not the usual Fern Michaels book. It was very slow with very little interest in the story line.
I would not recommend it.

I didn't think there was much thinking put into it. To me it seem she was trying to write a book fast to meet a dateline. I was disappointed in it, I was surprised because I have always loved her books.

This was written in 1972, with sexist characters, stifled emotions and ridiculous story lines. Kept reading hoping there would be a 2013 metamorphosis of the characters or story line, to no avail. Waste of money.
