In taxis weaving through the morning rush 7,000 miles from home, on the way to work as a teacher, long black dreadlocks, dark rose satin bomber jacket and black skinny jeans, listening to neo-soul with my twin flame waiting for me at home. This is how I ended 2016, a far cry from the overweight, ceaselessly unhappy, couch locked dreamer that began the year. Entitled Confessions of a Walk Away Wife, my memoir chronicles the immense personal changes I needed to make to get back to truly living, the love of my life who never let me forget who I was and could be, the Army Vet ex-husband who lost himself and brought everyone he loved down in the process and my recently widowed mother who transformed into a tipsy, carefree party girl.
The writing is very crisp and a pleasure to read. Even though there is quite a bit of narration, inner dialog, I never felt distant from the story. This book was a real pleasure to read and gets 4.5 stars! The score would have been higher, but I found quite a few spelling errors.
