Five years ago, after an exhaustive search, the Chicago Tribune announced Amy Dickinson as the next Ann Landers. Readers love her for her brutal honesty, her small-town values, and the fact that her motto is: "I make the mistakes so you don't have to." Now Amy spins those mistakes into the remarkable story of the women in her family who helped Amy and her daughter after Amy's husband abruptly left them.

Perhaps I did not fully appreciate the authors sense of humor.
While most of the book was interesting, it was not the type of book that I could not wait to get back to. Animal lovers beware. I had to skip the chapter about the dairy cow they had that they ended up slaughtering for food. Or the chapter where she talks about her cat Pumpkin's decline and death.
There were no laugh out loud moments. I thought I would like the book as my mother was a strong woman and Ms. DIckinson's maternal matriarchs were strong.
Also,the CD was not recorded at a good volume to compete with the noise on a bus. I had the volume up high on the CD player and I still missed some stuff. It was fine if you were in a quiet place.
