Upon her death, Hope Jackson left millions of women without the self-help guidance they had relied on for years.
“‘She was everything to me,’ Lois Montgomery of Evanston confessed today. ‘I don’t know how I’m going to go on without her.’ Millions of her peers are in the same boat. A virtual nation lost without the guidance of one savvy, scrappy, and indefatigable woman who was well ahead of her time.”
Mims, Rory and Sarah in particular need answers. What the heck are they going to do now that the reknowned love-sex-marriage guru is gone?
Rory has just been laid off from her position at HEART AND HOME – a woman’s magazine and “She barely had enough money in her checking account to pay for lunch, much less life.” To top off the crapiest day of her life, her divorced boyfriend had decided to go back to his wife – leaving Rory with no job, no boyfriend, no money and a huge amount of credit card debt.
Mims is having an extremely difficult time moving forward after the death of her daughter, Daria. Mim’s husband had found solace in religion, but Mims does not share in his belief that religion is the answer especially since they used to attend church as a family and just being there reminds her too much of Daria. To make matters worse, she suspects that her husband might be having an affair. Married for thirty years, she has no idea how to move forward with her life.
Sarah’s husband is in jail. Turns out he embezzled a lot of money. Now, all her supposed “friends” at the Country Club who live in McMansions just like the one she lives in, have begun to snub her. After clawing her way up in the world from the trailer park where she was raised, she has two sons, no job and she might just lose everything if the law decides to take her home as restitution for her husband’s misdeeds. She is floundering and her future is uncertain.
What the heck are they going to do?
Hope Jackson always said: “Ain’t nobody gonna take care of you the way you can take care of yourself.” But can these women find a way to follow her advice.
Reading this book proves that you can’t judge a person based on outward appearances and will have you looking at those around you in a different and more empathetic light.
This book is hilarious at times and heart-wrenching at other times. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. But most of all it will keep you entertained from beginning to end.
I rate this book as 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to anyone looking for a fun read. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
