The author talks about the desire to succeed and at the same time finding contentment in one’s life. How to find that balance to lead a peaceful but successful life? Read the book to know more.

Lastly i would suggest that the author find a professional Editor to take her books to the next level! There is so much good these books can do for the public and an experienced Editor is the next natural step to bring a much needed more professional look to them.
