What do you do when the love of your life passes away? If you're anything like Audrey Feldman you find a group of ladies in a similar situation, play cards, eat food, tell naughty jokes, and of course write a book about all the exceptionally interesting lives they all have had.
Audrey Feldman, 79, of Pine Island, New York, self-published The Irreverent Ladies Society of Orange County through Create Space. This is the second book in two years from this home-grown author.
The Irreverent Ladies Society of Orange County is a joyous memoir chronicling the lives of six Orange County widows and divorcees.
The amazing thing about this book is that while these six delightful women all wound up at the same card games, each of their journeys couldn't be more different, from one woman's tale of growing up in Germany during WWII to another's story of having a sex change operation in her 70s.
The extraordinary lives of the ladies are beautifully illustrated with both words and pictures.
Audrey Feldman finds a perfect balance between the solemn sides of her friend's stories and the joyous areas.
The Irreverent Ladies Society of Orange County is an excellent book, and it is excellent because it is real. It is about real people who lead ordinary lives. Each lady displays great pride discussing how wonderful and adorable her grandchildren are.
