I must begin by saying that I wasn¿t sure that I would be the best person to review a book with this title¿after all I have been happily married for almost 9 years and this book seemed to be geared to the single woman. I couldn¿t have been more wrong. Ms. Ford has done something that not many people are capable of doing. She has written a book about looking within to find love and happiness, yet has kept it upbeat and realistic, something I don¿t believe most 'self-help' books do. She makes you feel as if you are chatting with your best friend over a good cup of coffee and are discussing what it takes to be happy and confident without being dependent on others. In today¿s society, even after all these years, there still seems to be a social stigma attached to marriage. I married at a young age but I have friends who are still single and in their early 30s. Many of them feel as if they are running out of time, either to have children or get married. The 'fear' of being looked at as a spinster is childish in my mind, but I suppose after years of women being mothers and wives it is something that may still take years for some people to overcome. Thankfully this book is the stepping stone many of us need to get on the right track. I applaud Ms. Ford for writing a well thought out, easy to read book to help kick start the confidence and independence we are all capable of. This is truly a must read for single and married women everywhere!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Touching, Funny, Poignant, Wise
I adore this charming book. It's one of those wise tomes that you can read in one setting and when you are at the end you will put it on your night stand to read again and again. Part philosophy and part self-examination, here is a compassionate book that all readers regardless of their marital status will relate to.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
