Check out Bridget Straub today:
Glenda was named (incorrectly) after Glinda the Good Witch and therefore, subconsciously, has spent her entire life trying to live up to the reputation of a fictional character. To the outside world, she’s succeeding. She appears to have it all, the perfect husband, two beautiful little girls, a nice house, good friends and a dog named Bono! To Glenda, it’s not all that it’s all cracked up to be. Life throws her some unexpected curves and her world begins to unravel.Through laughter and tears, Glenda tells the story of how this good witch is searching for her wand and is coming out stronger than ever.
5 out of 5 Star Review:
"I'm going to miss the characters...I just finished this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. When I get to a point that I just want to finish it no matter what - then it is REALLY good. I started off this morning at 40% on the Kindle and finished (off and on reading) by 5:pm. This is one of those books that will stay with you. You'll remember the characters as if you were there with them and you will wonder how they are doing." --Kjay (NC)
