“My daughter and I bought a copy of your book in Indigo Bookstore when you were doing a book signing. I found this book recaps everything that has happened to me over the years while I was working and raising the family. It is just like someone had installed a camera in the house for so many years. I really wish that I got hold of the book years ago, now that I have retired. And I will say to all women that are working and raising families to read this book and they will enjoy the coming years more before the family is grown.” – Christine Sso
