OMG: I’m marie claire’s “This Month’s Must-Read”!

My book has been reviewed in the May 2008 edition of marie claire and awarded the prominent red sticker “This Month’s Must-Read”. And with Kylie on the cover, it’s sure to get a few readers.

(T)his sweetly compact and honest memoir is a very readable story … Lloyd’s honesty and simple writing style is deeply compelling. Their all-too-brief period of happiness inevitably makes for a tear-jerker, but the heartbreak is ameliorated by Lloyd’s account of her home renovations, which distract her from her loss. Who would have guessed that fixing a bad case of rising damp could help repair this young widow’s broken spirit?

Thanks to publicist Karen Williams for her sterling efforts, and for the sensitive response to my book by reviewer Kathy Buchanan.

  1. Congratulations! I admit to more than sneaking admiration for Marie Claire – a hackneyed thing to say, I know, but their articles on women in third world countries are terrific.
    Sounds like your launch was a great success, Virginia. Well done.
