The hilarious and heartfelt story of a woman who must learn how to be the heroine of her own life—a journey that will teach her priceless lessons about love, friendship, family, work, and her own heart.

Part metamorphosis, introspection, coming of age, and empowerment of not just Anna but other characters as well.

Palmer skillfully inserts wry humor to offset the weight of varying characters issues otherwise the narrative and players would have been in excess.

I enjoyed all the characters with their assorted issues but after a while I felt as if they were a dog chasing its tail – droning on and on about their challenges, taking two steps forward yet returning hastily to the starting point. Discovering deep seeded problems with really no resolve, I wanted more ‘show’ along with farsightedness action. I appreciate the severity of the premise, however, monotony quickly ruled.

Enterprising effort on Palmer’s part with overabundance of matters each character struggles with, with no real verdict.
