Laura goes to some pretty extreme measures to make herself beautiful in her own eyes and she just might find love. After all she's in her prime.
I found this book delightful. The message is such a terrific one for women of all ages. Be who you are. You are beautiful. It's heartbreaking, funny and full of wonderful writing. This book is a real look at women today and just what they deal with. The way they perceive themselves. Jane Wenham-Jones did a beautiful job of capturing just what millions of women the world over deal with every day.
The only problem I had with this book is there was almost no romance. It was more of a last minute thought.
I gave this one 4 out of 5 books because it seemed a little too devoid of romance.
