The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, a Daughter, and the Town That Raised Them

This is the tale of Amy and her daughter and the people who helped raise them after Amy found herself a reluctant single parent. It is a story of frequent failures and surprising successes, as Amy starts and loses careers, bumbles through blind dates, and travels across the country with her daughter. All roads, though, lead them back to her hometown of Freeville (pop. 458), a tiny village where Amy's family has lived for over 200 years.

This is the tale of Amy and her daughter and the people who helped raise them after Amy found herself a reluctant single parent.

    "Enjoyable "read""

    Frankly, I didn't know about Amy Dickinson taking over for Dear Abby. However, now I feel like I know her and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Books read by their authors can be dreadful but Amy does a great job. She tells her life story in a funny, self-deprecating, intelligent way. Many women will identify with her as she attempts to make peace with a failed marriage, raise a daughter as a single mom, and work at creating a career she never imagined. She reminisces about growing up in a small town in New York and finds through the years that you CAN go home again and find love and happiness.
