Having reached a time in her life where she feels her family is taking her for granted. the main character Leslie begins an introspective journey that gives us both some funny and touching moments. I really enjoyed this.

I picked this up because of the title and found it to be interesting but forgettable.

This book had me laughing out loud. I listened to it and loved the reader and her southern accent. It is the story of a woman who is literally the last original wife among all of her husbands friends. The friends have all moved on to younger trophy wives. It is the story of a woman who looks around and realizes she is unappreciated by her husband and her family and strikes off to find her own happiness. Truly a fun read.

This book is the laugh out loud story of a woman who finally take control of her life instead of living it to be her ungrateful husband's slave. Leslie is the "last original wife", after all of her husband's friends have divorced theirs and "upgraded" to a younger model. After a fateful trip to Scotland, Leslie decides it's time for a change. The results are hilarious! If you get a chance, listen to it as the narrator captures the southern accents perfectly!

My first Frank book. Couldn't put it down.
This book is about marriage and raising kids then stepping back to find out what this woman accomplished in her family.
This author wrote the things some of us have wanted to say and do.

I enjoyed this book. It moved along at a fast pace. I liked how the chapters changed from wife to husband. This woman was a absolute doormat to her whole family and she finally had enough. It was witty and clever. I have never known a woman who is so completely clueless, but it is just a story! good, lighthearted reading!
