Having reached a time in her life where she feels her family is taking her for granted. the main character Leslie begins an introspective journey that gives us both some funny and touching moments. I really enjoyed this.

I picked this up because of the title and found it to be interesting but forgettable.

Loved, loved this. She turned an all to often painful situation in to an uplifting and at times, hilarious!

This book had me laughing out loud. I listened to it and loved the reader and her southern accent. It is the story of a woman who is literally the last original wife among all of her husbands friends. The friends have all moved on to younger trophy wives. It is the story of a woman who looks around and realizes she is unappreciated by her husband and her family and strikes off to find her own happiness. Truly a fun read.

This book is the laugh out loud story of a woman who finally take control of her life instead of living it to be her ungrateful husband's slave. Leslie is the "last original wife", after all of her husband's friends have divorced theirs and "upgraded" to a younger model. After a fateful trip to Scotland, Leslie decides it's time for a change. The results are hilarious! If you get a chance, listen to it as the narrator captures the southern accents perfectly!

My first Frank book. Couldn't put it down.
This book is about marriage and raising kids then stepping back to find out what this woman accomplished in her family.
This author wrote the things some of us have wanted to say and do.

I suppose if you are recently divorced and are looking for a book where everything turned out just peachy for the long-maligned wife, this just may be the book for you. But frankly, I thought everything worked out just a little too perfectly for the heroine.

I enjoyed this book. It moved along at a fast pace. I liked how the chapters changed from wife to husband. This woman was a absolute doormat to her whole family and she finally had enough. It was witty and clever. I have never known a woman who is so completely clueless, but it is just a story! good, lighthearted reading!

I absolutely LOVED this book! Have never read Frank before, but I am a fan! A truly amusing and often funny story about a woman (over 50) realizing her marriage is over and has been for a long time. It is her story of finding herself, leaving her husband and letting everyone know that she is a new woman. she is no longer willing to give herself and her happiness up for everyone else and is ready to enjoy life to its fullest. If you are a woman over 50 and have been divorced, you will truly enjoy this refreshing look at starting over again. I highly recommend it! Tells the amusing story from both the male and the female perspective. Both are very real perspectives and will provide material for laughter. Very entertaining and right on target! One of the most entertaining books that I have read in a LONG time...
