Book Summary: (from Amazon)
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.
Drawing strength from Tina Turner's life story, SEARCHING FOR TINA TURNER is Lena's struggle to find herself after 25 years of being a wife and mother.
My Review:
Basically this book centers around a middle aged woman dealing with divorce and everything that comes along with it. J. Luckett wrote a powerful story about finding yourself and doing what makes you happy in life.
Our main character Lena gets a divorce after 23 years of marriage and two grown kids. She must learn to follow her own path and live again.
While the book was a little slow on the uptake, it has a great message to it and would be a must read for women struggling through a tough time in their lives. The ending was both sad and happy, and really leaves you to reflect on the subject matter.
Overall....and enjoyable read with a strong message!
