Review One True Theory of Love by Laura Fitzgerald, 2009 by NAL Trade, 352 pages
So very very cool to read a book-buddy’s name: Stephanie of The Written Word in the acknowledgements! and thank you to this same friend for sending the book (I won it in one of her generous giveaways – I can be lucky – just not when using a vegetable peeler…)
Good book! fun book, light reading, deep thoughts about love and family and what one really wants out of life. Closure, new beginnings and jumping into life with everything you’ve got.
Four stars I read this for my challenge to read women authors in March (see Lu’s challenge here). I’m looking forward to reading Laura Fitzgerald’s other novel, Veil of Roses, also well-received in book blog world.
Read these reviews (I’m still not at top typing speed – ha!)
uh – I thought I had read another but I can’t find it… If you’ve read and reviewed, let me know – I’ll link it up.

Oh how cool is that! I’m impressed that Stephanie’s in the acknowledgements! I’m glad you enjoyed the book.
I know! and now I’m finding out abt more of my friends being mentioned in books – must add these to my tbr.
Glad you liked it. Hope your typing finger gets better soon!
It’s amazing how useful are fingers are, huh?
BTW, I know you’re not too far from NYC. A couple book bloggers (including Kathy of Bermuda Onion) will be attending the BOok Expo America at the end of May (you can read about it on my blog). E-mail me if you are interested and I will clue you in on a little secret!
OOoooooOOO! You have me intrigued. I was also giving a few seconds thought to flying to Oregon in July for that groupmeet at thatta way. NYC is closer but the big city scares me a bit… But I’ll email you. 🙂
If you’re dying to see another friend in a book acknowledgment, grab a copy of Colleen Gleason’s As Shadows Fade (but you really do need to read the whole series and that’s the last one — you can just pick it up and look, in a bookstore, if you don’t want to read them all). Carl V. and I are in the acknowledgments. And, Chris from Stuff As Dreams Are Made On has a blurb in the quotations at the front!
yowza WOWza!! oh – so cool. REALLY! really nifty. I’m in awe.
I’ve never heard of this author and I’m curious, can you compare her to some other women’s writers – who would she fit nicely on the shelf with?
NO! I’m no good at questions like yours! sorry. I am not as scholarly as you and wouldn’t begin to attempt to answer such a question. On the other hand… I must say that I just finished another Margaret Atwood and I think she is A.MA.Z.I.N.G!!!!! and not that I will rate that book more than this one – some books are for fun and some books are just really good on a different level and yet I’ll rate them the same and it’s probably not fair but it’s all about what I expect and get. For me, books are like food. IF I’m expecting an amazing meal and get it – wonderful. If I stop by a dive and the hamburgers and fries are to die for – fabulous! Can I really compare the chefs? is it fair?!
I am glad you are on the mend.
I am in bed right now with a flu, but at least I am able to read books & write comments so the days aren´t horribly long.
UCK! Flu sucks! Hope you can get lots of rest and time to recuperate and none of the ‘guilties’…
Congrats to Stephanie on both counts and congrats to you for getting such a great read. I love light reads once in a while. I just finished a light read: Deep Dish for a Book Club Girl show. fantastic….funny…and yummy.
Ooo – just the title has me intrigued. Well, and what you say about funny and yummy. I’ve read a lot of good stuff lately, actually. I don’t try to be too critical but if I don’t want to put the book down and can’t wait to find an excuse to pick it up again – I have to say it was better than good. However. That doesn’t always mean that I’m not happy when it’s done. (Does that make any sense?)
I haven’t read this yet, but Veil of Roses is great! I really enjoyed reading that one!
Hi Melody! I think Lisa at Books on the Brain did, too.
You liked it! Me too!
Thanks for linking my review. Wasn’t that cool that Steph. was mentioned in the acknowledgements? I had read that on her blog before my copy arrived, so the first thing I did was look for her name. I’m sure that’ll never happen to me.. but heck I still get excited when I’m mentioned on someone’s BLOG let alone a book!!
I know – cool! I bet you get a mention someday – you are such a tremendous advocate and cheerleader for authors. 🙂
