The Road to Someplace Better

A definite must read
Lillian's book is a definite must read for every one of us, because she's such a role model in so many ways--especially for any woman who would like to own her own business or run her own enterprise. Her inspirational story about searching for 'some place better' truly turns into a "Yes I Can' call to all of us.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A MUST READ for those who dare to achieve their dreams in this lifetime!
Lillian Lambert's memoir offers a candid and humbling account of her life's journey. She engages you from the very beginning, sharing details of both her "highs" and "lows" in such a way that you relate immediately recognize that nothing's impossible or unattainable with love, courage and devotion. The book is not only inspiring, but also a true guidebook on how to trust and be true to oneself, despite what may seem like insurmountable odds. I highly recommend for those who dare to live out their dreams in this lifetime!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Determination, Drive, and Rewards
This book is an honest, forthright, refreshing, no-holes barred detailing of Lillian's journey to someplace. It's an informative, easy to identify with, fun reading memoir, detailing the vicissitudes of a forerunner enroute to "someplace" culminating in her self-fulfillment into retirement.Was this review helpful?

The book demonstrates the importance of having determination, drive, & persistence, and not allowing customs or traditions to define one's boundaries. Alternatively stated, it's an "object lesson" of the importance of not being captive to the environment one is born into. In another sense, Lillian did what came naturally - she was internally driven to reach for the next rung in the ladder that her dreams unfolded before her. No doubt, her Christian roots/foundations, faith, & the Bible, were her silent enforcers that refused to allow her to stagger, along with the early recognition that the skill-sets provided by a high school diploma or a BS degree wouldn't open up for her significant breakthroughs that she perceived possible. Having studied the life of Joshua in Sunday School didn't hurt, neither did moving in the flow of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's.
Many of us of her generation and culture can readily identify with her path; likewise, many of the next generation would surely benefit from an in-depth study of it. In short, her fruit reflects the rewards from hard work, risk taking, maintaining relationships & adhering to the counsel & advice of trusted associates, along with owning up to the potential that others saw in her. She should be congratulated for pursuing her predestination for greatness because many of us start the trail but few pursue to the end. Like a rolling stone, she kept on rolling toward the next potential, trusting God to see her through it all. I highly recommend this book for today's youth who don't see doors of opportunities on the horizon of their future.

Well written and engaging. Lambert's personal story of her experiences during her travels on "the road to someplace better" is awe-inspiring. As a current MBA student and an African American woman, I was interested to read about the obstacles that she encountered and impressed at how she persevered and overcame. Her story shows me that I should dream "bigger" and expect to achieve more. Lillian Lambert is living proof that it can be done! My 15 year old daughter will be reading this next!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
