When I was 32, my third husband walked out on my two young boys and I. It was the week before Christmas. I had a brand new business, with no predictable income. We lived in a crappy little town house, I wasn’t sure I would be able to pay the light bill for, much less the rent. There wasn’t a present under the tree for my kids, but I couldn’t stop

Overview

When I was 32, my third husband walked out on my two young boys and I. It was the week before Christmas. I had a brand new business, with no predictable income. We lived in a crappy little town house, I wasn’t sure I would be able to pay the light bill for, much less the rent. There wasn’t a present under the tree for my kids, but I couldn’t stop dancing. I was alive and free.
I had survived a heinous molestation as a little girl, three disastrous marriages riddled with infidelity, mental, verbal and physical abuse. I had buried my dad and my son. I’d fought Goliath and lost. So when my third husband decided he was done, I held the door open as he walked out.
I was forced to admit there were things in life I just wasn’t good at. Marriage was at the top of that list. With the first stroke of my pen on the blank page of my life I created a ridiculously impossible list my next husband had to say, do and be, to insure I would forever remain single. To prove that this guy did not exist, I signed up for an online dating site and started doing something I had never done before, dating.
“The Purple Orchid List” is a real life fairytale about overcoming impossible circumstances and having an unrealistic dream come true.

I couldn't put this book down. I read it in under a week! It will make you laugh and cry, but it lifts you up in life. One woman's failed relationships and struggles can make you look at your life and realize there is more out there, more possibilities than what God has dealt you. Very uplifting and a refreshing read! Not like anything I have ever read before!
