Searching for Tina Turner - Jacqueline E. Luckett LOVED ITAt first I thought this was just another chick lit book, but it gives a whole new spin on the genre. Lena's marriage is in trouble and like so many other women around the age of fifty, she discovers that she has given up more than she bargained for when she supports her husband's rise in the corporate world. She has given up her own identity and becomes the perfect wife. The theme of Tina Turner's life story plays in the background and gives Lena hope that she too can find her own way. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to more from this author. This story is one that has played out recently for a lot of my friends. It is nice to see one where the woman wins and becomes a stronger person.
