The Fringe Hours by Jessica N. Turner
I bought it on sale and then it waited on my shelf all this time. Things happened in life around that time that gave me more time then I knew what to do with so this book really wasn't necessary then. I almost gave it away but I kept it and I'm happy that I did.
I read this one recently, and I have to say, it did have some really good points. It definitely caused me to pause and think about the way I was treating myself and my needs. Nothing really earth shattering though, but good.
Now, if you are a wife and mother this book is totally for you, and that it was written with you in mind. Since I am neither of those things, it was harder for me to relate to some of the stories and anecdotes in the book, but I did get a general idea and spirit behind the messages. I did wish that the book could have possibly touched more on the working, late twenties/early thirties, childless women of the world who have hopes and dreams, but that's okay.
The other thing that was a little weird for me was how religious it got in a few places. I'm not really a religious person and some of it was a bit of a waste on me because I really couldn't connect with the material, but it wasn't a really big issue.
Recommendation: This is for the working wife and mother who needs to learn to give herself permission to have some me time. This is a great resource for you. For the rest of us, this isn't a bad piece of advice. You just have to be patient and take the gems of wisdom where they lie.
