Does anyone know at least one contemporary woman–late 30s, single, average-looking–who, at some point in her life, starts feeling so insecure that she gives up searching for her soul mate? Well, Claire Cook writes about this type of women in her novels Must Love Dogs and Wallflower in Bloom. The protagonists, Sarah and Deidre, respectively, are smart, successfully employed, loved by their families, but lonely. They would do anything to help others, but they are too discouraged to help themselves. So what does it take for them to find happiness? They have to take a leap! And they do!
These books are wonderfully inspiring. And they’re fun to read. Fun, fun, fun!
