Laundered Shirts look Better on Hangers by Jane Collins – Phillippe

Laundered Shirts look Better on Hangers by Jane Collins – Phillippe – A humorous dark at times,self deprecating in parts and dry wit majorly marks this tale.
When I received this book from the author through @BookTasters mI hadn’t expected that I would love it so much.
This is the tale of a not exactly downtrodden but browbeaten with no will of her own housewife Claudia who is manipulated by her cheating husband and evil sister. Whatever she wants in life since birth is taken away by her sister just for the heck of it even her beloved piano that belonged to her grandparents though her sister never plays it.Claudia thinks that the only power she has over her life is to end it and even she fails at that 3 times. She considers this fate and with help of her true friends and some eccentric people she meets she rebuilds her life, becomes financially independent and gets rid of her old life and builds a new one.
This is her story – how she rids herself of the cobwebs and finds her inner strength at an age where many people think life is over and gets back all that she truly desires forms the crux of the story.
The pace is slow ( It would have been better if the mental state and inner conflicts description wa a little less) but still this book is smile all the way through kind of story and laughing loud in some place. A must read. Don’t get put off by the Phone sex thing- It plays a very small but significant part in Claudia’s evolution.
