Saturday Spotlight: The Mighty Queens of Freeville by Amy Dickinson...

May 8, 2010
Today's spotlight is on the paperback release of Amy Dickinson's The Mighty Queens of Freeville.

Can you believe that I've had a copy of this sitting on my bookshelves forever and yet never got around to reading it? I blame it on my crazy-out-of-control TBR pile... Y'know, the one that I'm not really making any headway on.

In THE MIGHTY QUEENS OF FREEVILLE: A Story of Surprising Second Chances, Amy Dickinson, a bestselling author, nationally syndicated advice columnist and NPR humorist shares her unlikely life story.

The book opens on a scene of domestic disentanglement -- as Dickinson's husband walks out of their marriage, leaving her stranded in London with a child to raise.

Through hilarious anecdotes and poignant insight, Dickinson describes the many detours she’s made on the road that took her back to her hometown of Freeville, New York --- and the assortment of quirky, strong, wise and wonderful women there who helped shaped her life along the way.

Readers will find many themes and ideas to discuss, from marriage and children, divorce and single parenthood, to finding love when it seems to be forever unattainable.

Readers can connect with Amy on her new website, a virtual hometown,, where they will find inspiring video interviews conducted by Amy, book club discussion questions, photos and more.

Sounds like a good, uplifting memoir to read when you think the sky is falling and your own world is ending.
