    An Excellent Read!

    Johnson's "Fictionalized Memoir" is smart, meaningful, funny and well-written. Her portrayal of the strong career-minded military woman is refreshing and telling. A highly enjoyable read, she should write another.

    An excellent read!

    I enjoyed following the lead character's legal career through the military, a world I knew nothing about. The wide variety of work over her twenty years in the Army made for fscinating reading. Her career story was interwoven through her annual gatherings of lifelong women friends and her close friendships with two men she first met at law school. Her life and choices she made after leaving the service were the final chapters in the book and a time when she expanded, explored and continued to grow. I definitely recommend this book!
