Summary

Summary

Wanda Lane never expected her 30s to look like this: divorced, estranged from her family and jobless. But with help from her therapist friend Elizabeth and a handful of sticky notes, Wanda is soon apologising to old friends, facing the demons that led her to marry her ex, and figuring out what she wants from life.

Booklist Review

There is no shortage of bad luck in Wanda Lane's life. She loses her advertising sales job while she is in the hospital recuperating from a head injury. Her abusive and drunken ex-husband has been leaving threatening messages, and she can't get a phantom tune out of her head. Yet she is not exactly a sympathetic character. A litany of bad breaks has left her spiteful and complaining. Even so, Wanda manages to attract the attention of a handsome, widowed lawyer who only wants to protect her, but before she lets herself fall in love, she needs to get her life in order. A bizarre want ad lands her a new friend (and unofficial therapist), and with her help, Wanda decides to do something meaningful. Readers will warm to Wanda as she mends broken relationships, finds a fulfilling job, and learns to open her heart. First-time author Rich has managed to skillfully blend serious topics with humor, and readers will love her for it. --Aleksandra Kostovski Copyright 2004 Booklist
