Official Summary: Free-spirited psychologist Dr. Olivia Bayer suspects she’ll need a miracle to help the four wildly different women in her anger management class. Grace, a single working mother, can barely find a moment’s rest. Jane, a high-profile real estate agent, is struggling in the recession. Kit, in her fifties, has had it with her taunting older brothers. And Leah, a young mother of two, is starting over after ending a troubled relationship. All have reached a crossroads, and Dr. Bayer has an unconventional plan to steer them on the right track. As the class gets taken everywhere from a bowling alley to a shooting range, the women’s Tuesday meetings transform from tense, reluctant gatherings into richly rewarding experiments in female bonding. As Grace, Jane, Kit, and Leah open up—revealing secrets, swapping stories, and recovering long-lost dreams—old wounds begin to heal, new friendships are forged, and miracles manifest in the most surprising ways.
Review: This is a fast paced book about four women from different backgrounds who meet in a court appointed anger management class. They make friendships and learn in unique ways to help them understand why they have these issues.
I enjoyed how they became empowered by going to the outings they had to go on. They had to stretch themselves in ways they thought they never could.
As women, I believe we all have to do many things we might not want to do, but it makes us stronger and that empowers us.
One thing I took away is a Happy Journal. I think this is something we all should do.
(In order to learn a bit more about the book and our guest reviewer's thoughts, I asked her some specific questions---Note from Lauren)
What's a Happy Journal?
You write what made you happy that day. It can't have any negativity.
What did you not like in the book?
Parts in the book where Dr. Bayer's dog would talk (their perspective - nobody could hear). It was odd. Not really necessary.
Would you read other books by this author?
