Searching for Tina Turner: A Book Review & Giveaway
On the surface, Lena Spencer appears to have it all. She and her wealthy husband Randall have two wonderful children, and they live a life of luxury. In reality, however, Lena finds that happiness is elusive. Randall is emotionally distant, her son has developed a drug habit, and her daughter is disgusted by her mother's "overbearing behavior." When Randall decides that he's had enough of marriage counseling, he offers his wife an ultimatum: "Be grateful for all I've done for you or leave." Lena, realizing that money can't solve her problems and that her husband is no longer the man she married, decides to choose the latter.
About The Author:
Jacqueline Luckett is a former sales representative for Xerox. After leaving the corporate world, Jacqueline took a creative writing class on a dare (from herself) and began writing short stories and poetry and never looked back. Jacqueline loves living in Oakland, but travels frequently to nurture her passion for photography and learning to cook exotic foods. She is currently hard at work on her next novel.
When I choose to review this book, I figured that Searching For Tina Turner would be another typical "chick lit" filled with cheesy romance, etc. However, I was pleasantly surprised. This book is the journey that a woman who is unsatisfied in her marriage takes to "find herself"
I believe that there will definitely be women out there that will definitely relate to many of the issues and family dynamics that this family experiences. This was a great book with a good plot, and it is both easy and quick to read. I highly recommend it.
