More About This Book

Overview

Brooklyn was born in the sixties and raised in the suburbs. She was born at a time when women were housewives and men were the sole providers for their household. Her dad was the king of the castle and expected to be treated as such. As the years passed, her dad's demeanor softened and their relationship blossomed.
Brooklyn had always felt like an outcast. She became a punk rocker in the early eighties, which drove her parents crazy. She started staying out all hours of the night and going to nightclubs all over Hollywood. She always felt she was different, but didn't understand why.
She spent the bulk of her life trying to figure it all out without coming up with any real conclusions. At forty-six, she was still trying to make sense of it all.
This story chronicles her childhood and her young adult life. While employed as a waitress, she tried to become a working actress in Los Angeles. By thirty, she got married and years later, joined the ever-growing club she refers to as "divorce central." This divorce caused her a great deal of turmoil in a life that had been filled with never ending drama. Throughout the years, she has dealt with many losses and life changes, and suffered a chronic illness.
But, through her journey, Brooklyn learned a lot about herself and discovered true love, although that was also when everything erupted around her. Despite meeting her soul mate, she discovered she would have to pay a very high price. She was now open to unfair criticism and constant scrutiny by everyone, including her closest friends and family.

    Hello. I have read this book from a friend who bought it when it first came out. I absolutely loved it. It was honest, open and at times heartbreaking.
    Now I would like to own the ebook for my new Nook. I see that it is no longer available. How can I get it? Also, I noticed you have the book set at $99.37. That must be a mistake. I wanted to bring this to your attention. I know people who are planning on buying this book in both the e book and the paperback versions.

    My Review
    From the moment I started reading this book I knew I was going to like it. Little did I know by the end of the book I would fall in love with it.
    Brooklyn's life from the beginning sucks you in.
    She struggles to find herself in her relationships, her family and even in her marriage.
    Brooklyn loses people she loves and looks for love in all the wrong places.
    In the second part of the book (my favorite), there is something so compelling that Brooklyn has to face. It tugged at my heart strings and I couldn't help but shed a few tears.
    As if Brooklyn hasn't endured enough on her wild ride of a journey, yet again she is hit with another mind boggling circumstance that is out of her control, nor is it any where near her fault!
    This part of the book made my admiration for Brooklyn shoot up to a ten. Talk about an inspiring and strong woman. Let's just put it this way, I was wishing I could morph into the book and help Brooklyn with the hot mess she had come to have to deal with on a daily basis. UGH is an understatement but, I will keep it clean!

    The one thing that inspired me the most was Brooklyn's FIRE, COURAGE, and HEART!
    Brooklyn believes in what she is fighting for and never gives up.
    As much as I would love Brenda to write a "Home Wrecker Part Two." I have to say not at the expense of this beautiful person I fell in love with.
    "Home Wrecker" is a MUST read and I give it a five star rating.

    I was asked to review this book for Miss Perlin. Since she is an
    unknown author I was not overly enthusiastic. To my delight I have come
    across a great story about a woman's own personal struggles. I was
    touched by the honestly and the heartbreak and could identify with the
    main character. I really enjoyed the ups and downs and laughed all the
    way through. I found Home Wrecker to be a great story and an easy read.
    I found myself involved in the story from the very beginning. I can
    honestly say that I love everything about this book. I hope there are
    more stories to come from Miss Perlin.

    I really enjoyed this book...not just for the story but for the way it took me back to memories of my own life growing up in Los Angeles in the 80's. Hard to believe this is the author's first book... it's written with such a heartfelt combination of candor, humility and humor. I'd definitely recommend it!
