Home Wrecker by Brenda Perlin

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 read about this book on Facebook. It came very recommended and I was not at all disappointed. I got into he story right away and found myself sucked in. After I finished I was dumbed to see it end. I hope there will be a sequel, Not all books capture my interest like this one did.

This book was a nice escape from my everyday life. I haven't read anything that I have enjoyed this much in a long time. What a roller coaster ride this book takes you through.

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!

Nice story with a lot of heart that was easy to get into. I was kept me in suspense all the way through. The title was a little misleading, in my opinion.

I got so absorbed in this story that I read it in one day. I could not help getting caught up in the never ending drama. It made me think of my childhood and how hard it was growing up not exactly fitting in.

I don't usually do reviews but this book touched me. I can't stop thinking about the character Brooklynr and all her struggles. I loved the main character and was sad to see the story end. Ruth was a character that I loved to hate.

I just turned the last page of this book. I truly enjoyed this title. Pick up this book to discover the triumph of a dependent woman discovering her own strength and the joy of self-reliance. I found it to be inspiring at the same time sad. This story gave me so much to think about.
