Got to love Terry

  • Nov 27, 2005
Terry McMillan has provided her public with another slice of life from a different flavor of pie. This time around, the protagonist is in search of something unknown but finds something well- known--LOVE. Having to decide between hope and experience, Stella plunges into the blue waters of Jamaica and the heart of a man half her age. This is not a 'How To' book--it is a 'Why Not?' book. You would be impressed with the way Terry took a light-hearted approach to a very heavy subject. Whether or not the writing of it was cathartic and whether or not she had difficulty writing it matter very little. Personally I thought it was unique and witty. How it touches its readers matters greatly.

Any woman, anywhere, at any age can appreciate the feelings and emotions of Stella. She transcends race, age and marriage status barriers even though she is very definitely a black-40ish-single woman. I felt as though I was reading Stella's mind (which was the point). Don't we all form our thoughts in that fashion?! The humor was wonderful, the relationships so real and the characters true to life.
One thing I can say about Terry is she does not beat around the bush. I applaud her on the description of the relationship that Stella shares with her son: A Loving, caring, honest and respectful relationship. Thank you Terry for showing us that warmth!
