I was so looking forward to reading this book because the writer and myself are exactly the same age. But upon completing this 283 page book, I was rather disappointed and that is putting it mildly.
All that the author revealed was basically what nearly every living person experiences to one degree or another, when living life.
Though detesting and fearing her mother and her controlling, abusive ways, I found that the author exhibited many of the same characteristics when dealing with her other family members.

About the J.R. Lucy
Over many years, I have read stories about other people's lives and the way they have triumphed over adversity. This story is about the obstacles I have faced. I walked out on a marriage when my daughter was only ten months old, and I survived. I married again and stayed in that partnership until it was almost time for us to retire, and then I realised that we had such different ideas about retirement that I could no longer stay in that relationship. Again I left, but by then, I was sixty years old and had to start my life over again as a single senior person whose friends and family took sides. I was financially compromised, but I knew I would be able to redesign my life as I have an inbuilt resilience, as many women do. For the first time in my life, I am living in a rented unit and sharing with another female who has also left relationships behind her. A female cat makes up this happy trio
