Any woman who has experienced turning fifty will appreciate and possibly recognize herself in Beth. The Year I Lost My Mind is another keeper by Linda Rettstatt, a fresh new voice in women’s fiction.
Beth finds a long hidden talent, painting, that frees her to soar. The readers become Beth and find their own wings.
If you read nothing else this month you MUST read The Year I Lost My Mind. Tolstoy can wait, this cannot. On a scale of 1-5 this rates a 7.
