Article Body:
Her Backyard by Doreen Lewis is an adventure, romance novel that depicts
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 between
co-workers, siblings and friends. I am certain that many readers within
the age group between 30 and 40 will find a connection with Audrey, the
main character.

Audrey and her sister Ava have a touching, close – sometimes tense, other
times humorous – relationship. Their mother died when they were young and
now they were facing losing their beloved father. Audrey returns home for
the funeral and meets up with an old flame that helps her come to terms
with what is missing in her life. Office politics were wearing thin and
career hungry co-workers were beginning to both irritate 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
emotionally wrought she is given the opportunity to choose the path of
content happiness. Audrey learns to make a decision based upon her needs,
rather than trying to live up to the impossible lifestyle society
encourages.

Her Backyard definitely has a story line that I think many women can
relate with. Career women have to make many sacrifices and there are
times when one wonders if this lifestyle is truly full filling all their
needs. I think Doreen Lewis has written a fine book portraying this
conundrum.
