Review: The Blasphemy Box by Mandy Behbehani

Book Description

 April 24, 2013
“You know that nightmare you’ve always had? The one where you wake up one day to find yourself fat, frumpy, fifty and alone? I’m living it.”
Maddy Nelson has an idyllic existence: a handsome husband, great kids, a comfortable lifestyle. One morning soon after she turns fifty, however, she wakes up in her San Francisco home to find her husband Steven announcing that he’s leaving her for a woman half her age. And a third of her size.
Feeling totally unmoored and grieving for her married life and husband, Maddy finds herself thrust into an unfamiliar and uncomfortable world of middle-aged singledom. There, she must come to terms with her situation and embark on her new life: divorce proceedings, single parenting, internet dating, and trying to earn a living. It’s enough to drive her over the brink.
To help her cope, she shares her struggles in a smart, wry blog named The Blasphemy Box, after her ex-husband’s obnoxious habit of having her drop a quarter into a wooden box every time she said something off color. Her madcap middle-aged adventures find her devoted readers who identify with her challenges.
In time, Maddy creates herself and finds happiness in the arms of a good man, and a fulfilling new career as a novelist.

                                                                     My Review:

This is a nightmare not many people want. Maddy hears her husband tell her that he leaves her when she is fifty one. She can't believe her ears even more when it is for a woman half her age. She keeps on hoping he will be back one day.

Her kids try to help where they can, but will Maddy let go and chose for herself? Will she be able to find new love? She wil finish her book that she been trying to write for so long with help of a friend she becomes stronger and believing in herself, will she see the love that is infront of her eyes after she is lied and cheated on? buy the book and find out!
