Top Customer Reviews
Lisa addresses the serious things too -- losing her mother last year to lung cancer and how regardless of our age or their age when they pass, it iis difficult to lose your parents but it is comforting to know that they really are always with us because we are the product of them and see them in ourselves. Even while addressing a serious subject like this -- both writers are able to see humor and the gift of remaining positive.
Overall this is a highly readable book and one that makes you think it would be great to be a friend of either of these women.
If given the opportunity to see Lisa at a book signing -- go. You will not be disappointed. She is funny, intelligent, witty and interesting. I've seen her speak three times and always came away feeling happy that I went and having learned something about the writing process. She's very good about sharing with readers how she gets inspired to write a novel. I remember one time she said that her inspiration for a new book was passing a woman in the mall who had a certain "look" that sparked her thoughts about the lead character in her next novel.
