In her first book, With This Ring I Journey, Lorie Kleiner Eckert journeyed to self-acceptance through her work as a quilter, and began to follow her dream of being an inspirational speaker. Her second book, Get Quiet and Listen, helps readers get in touch with their inner voice in order to achieve full potential. She has since established herself both as a fiber artist and inspirational speaker. Now, with the publication of her third book, she is known not only as a speaker and fiber artist, but also as a columnist whose essays appear in newspapers nationwide.
As a middle-aged Jewish divorcée, Eckert has a unique perspective on dating, relationships, and self-esteem. Her essays include inventive, fresh meditations on everything from cappuccino and pizza parlors to personal ads and Gwyneth Paltrow, with a little square dancing thrown in. This collection of thirty-one essays ranges far and wide across the landscape of “singlehood,” with an addictive blend of heartache, chutzpah, and yiddishkeit.
