All She Can Be Her success as a bestselling author of sexy historical romances had cost Rita Bellamy her marriage - and jeopardized her relationships with her three grown children. Two years after her divorce, Rita was still blaming herself - though she knew her ambition was not the only reason her marriage had failed. Her saving grace was her writing. While working on her latest epic at her lakeside cottage in Pennsylvania, with only a typewriter and sleeping bag for company, she decided it was time to really live her own life - to furnish her place her way, to demand her children's respect, and to take a second chance on love.... Based on true life experience, All She Can Be is Fern Michaels at her best - the deeply heartfelt story of a woman struggling to find happiness in a world where love and duty too often collide. Free Spirit When Dory first left Manhattan for life with Griff Michaels in Washington, D.C., she threw herself into cooking, cleaning, baking, and decorating with the same energy that had made her magazine career a success. But as the months passed, she had to work harder and harder at happiness. She grew fat and sloppy, and Griff grew more and more distant. For the first time in her life, Dory was afraid of losing love, purpose, and, most of all, herself.
