Got at a book sale - proceeds went to Operation Gratitude (care packages for soldiers overseas). To be read.

Jane Lofton may have grown up as a nobody, but she doesn't stay one for long. Not once she figures out that hard work, tenacity and blond ambition are a girl's best friend. Of course, having the right husband doesn't hurt either. But being rich and successful is not all it's cracked up to be. Okay, maybe it is -- but life is still tough, dammit.
Jane is so busy rescheduling her next liposuction, shopping for clothes she doesn't need and bragging about her latest real estate sale that she hasn't noticed the callus forming around her heart. Her husband is screwing around on her, and she talks to her daughter through a therapist. No, life is not perfect.
So what should she do? Jane's not sure, but she figures a drive in her "Bimmer" might help her relax. A broken fingernail momentarily diverts her attention, and when she looks up she sees an eighteen-wheeler bearing down on her. Suddenly, Jane's problems become incidental. She barely escapes with her life, but not before she's promised God, and herself, that she is going to "do good" for the rest of her life.
So how come "doing good" is so hard?

This book came in the mail the other day. I've recently been attacked with bookrings, so this may take a while for me to get to.

This was a really good book. I know it's a "fluff" book, but it really made me think about doing good myself and being more altruistic. The story of Jane and her life after the accident, how she handles it, how she sees herself changing, and how she eventually finds happiness, it all felt so real to me. It made me laugh, it even made me cry.

I'll get this out to Rrrcaron by this weekend.
