From divorce, to coming out, to cancer, Lianne Saffer tells an honest and hilarious account of her last 15 years. In it, she describes the often-painful discovery of her own resilience and the process of learning to trust herself along the way. Lianne's engaging storytelling weaves in the themes of small-town religious family upbringing, redefining modern femininity, and navigating life's complexities. Despite the heavy topics, her fierce reflections and lessons are grounded in vulnerability and the perfect dose of humor. Lianne's story has you alternating between laughing and crying and it's a must-read for anyone who has ever considered sending someone flowers. A note from the author: I wrote this book in hopes of opening up conversation around challenges in relationships, sexuality, religion, and cancer. I wrote it to help people feel validated, seen, challenged, and heard. I wrote it because I knew nothing about what these situations really felt like until they happened to me, despite knowing that they were happening all around me. Still, nobody was talking about them. I wrote it because I wish I had read it years ago. I wrote it in hopes that somewhere within its pages, people would see a glimpse of themselves and feel less alone and less afraid. You will see your mother, your sister, your daughter, and your friends through the vulnerability in these pages. Reading this book feels like you are watching a movie unfold. It is raw and unfiltered- leaving you laughing, crying, celebrating big love, and celebrating the expanse of the human experience.
