Article Body:
Her Backyard by Doreen Lewis is an
 adventure, romance novel that depi
cts a career woman in the middle of
 self-discovery. It is about making
 choices that may not be so easy to
 make and complex relationships bet
ween co-workers, siblings and frien
ds. I am certain that many readers
within the age group between 30 and
 40 will find a connection with Aud
rey, the main character.

Audrey and her sister Ava have a to
uching, close – sometimes tense, ot
her times humorous – relationship.
Their mother died when they were yo
ung and now they were facing losing
 their beloved father. Audrey retur
ns home for the funeral and meets u
p with an old flame that helps her
come to terms with what is missing
in her life. Office politics were w
earing thin and career hungry co-wo
rkers were beginning to both irrita
te and consume her.

She begins to question her choices
in life and is faced with desirable
 options that play tug-of-war with
her mind. Finally, exhausted and em
otionally wrought she is given the
opportunity to choose the path of c
ontent happiness. Audrey learns to
make a decision based upon her need
s, rather than trying to live up to
 the impossible lifestyle society e
ncourages.

Her Backyard definitely has a story
 line that I think many women can r
elate with. Career women have to ma
ke many sacrifices and there are ti
mes when one wonders if this lifest
yle is truly full filling all their
 needs. I think Doreen Lewis has wr
itten a fine book portraying this c
onundrum.
