Not so much a review as a *reaction*... I opened this book expecting a flourish, such as a decorator sweeping into a room and laying out a grand plan. What I got instead is some basic advice, somewhat personal & not necessarily universal. For example, she discusses her displeasure with spending more than 5 hours with company. (She sounds a little insular & withering at this poing.) Further, the book is lacking in *real* advice, such as how daughters might deal with boys, young men and later the men they encounter in their lives. While the book lacks in vivaciousness (& this may only be due to Ms. Stoddard's writing style), it does identify some of influences in the writer's life. I found it especially interesting that she mentions Eric Butterworth. As I have recently learned, he is the start of something called the "unity movement" -- or some such. My plan is to look further into Mr. Butterworth.

I got it as a gift on December 2011. My parents came to visit and surprised me with this bright green medium size book in a bag. I opened it on the 25th and could not stop reading it. It has taught me many simple things on how to live happy and relaxed. It has also motivated me to keep writing in my blog as is my strong desire this year. No need for high amounts of money are needed to feel comfortable and enjoy life. For that, thank you Mrs Stoddard. I'm sure you feel blessed when your words captivate the soul of a human being. God bless.
