woman looking to be inspired

Review by Jamie Michele for Readers’
Favorite — Very
Marilyn Howard delivers a strong and timely autobiography,
and it's no wonder she was able to fill
a whole book with her stories. We're fortunate to have her share a span of decades,
early life, friendships, exciting stories as she traversed the globe, relationships, legal woes and
government foes, and motherhood. The latter was juggled with the dexterity of an octopus, while
shooting star continued to rise and illuminate he Manhattan skyline she so dearly loves.
While reading this
well-written, engrossing, and witty memoir, I often read bits of
advice out loud to my teenage daughter who enjoyed
them as much as I did.
And honestly, if you can get a teenage girl to smile you’re knocking it
out of the park
Other readers say, "A great read." "Inspiring." "Five stars."
