Review of What Matters Most
Review by: Crystal J. Casavant-Otto
Book by: Author, Bette Lee Crosby

What's not to love about Clay and Louise Palmer? They're just like my parents, my friend's parents, and so many of my neighbors growing up. They've been living almost separate lives for years and Clay has no idea how his decision to move would throw Louise into a panic. I remember thinking 'she's so stubborn' about Louise at the beginning of the book. As author, Bette Lee Crosby developed the characters, I realized the things I didn't like about Louise were the same things I don't like about myself. As Louise worked through her issues, I had an opportunity to look at myself more objectively. By the end of the book I felt kindred to not only the characters but to the author as well. What a fabulously told tale of family, friendship, and what matters most. 

This is the first book I've read by Bette Lee Crosby and I'm already adding some of her other writings to my bookshelf as "must reads".

Write on Bette Lee!

  1. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a fantastic job
    with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on
    Opera. Outstanding Blog!

  7. Howdy, I believe your blog might be having internet browser compatibility
    issues. Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, excellent website!

  9. I leave a response when I like a article on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to
    the discussion. It is triggered by the fire communicated in the article
    I read. And after this article "What Matters Most - Book Review and Author Information for Bette Lee Crosby".
    I was actually moved enough to leave a comment :-P I actually do have a couple of questions
    for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments appear like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
