After seeing a photo of Steve's former wife and photos of other women he's dated, she decides she's going to go on a diet, become supermodel size and have Steve panting over her. Only things didn't quite go as planned. She may not have lost any weight, but she gained the love of a handsome doctor and most importantly she gained the love and exceptance of herself.
This book is for any woman - or a girl on her way to becoming a woman - who feels insecure in any way. One famous line comes to mind.
"I'm a woman phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that's me." -Dr. Maya Angelou
I loved this book! I can't say it enough. You would be a fool to skip over such good reading.
...and Monica... YOU GO, MY PHENOMENAL SISTER!
Although Carmel was a full figured woman, she was still a beautiful person -- not only on the outside, but inside where it really counts. Carmel realized that she had to accept herself as she was -- weight and all -- if she was to respect herself and see herself as she wanted others to see her. Not only did Carmel's views affect herself, but her issues with her weight affected her family members also. Her daughter started seeing herself through Carmel's eyes and it almost resulted in ill health. However, through love, everything worked out.
Now, about Dr. Steve Reynolds! WOW! Dr. Steve turned out to be just what I thought he would be -- one kind, considerate, and nonjudgemental brother. Sure, he had a negative thought or two about Carmel's weight, but he was not thinking as himself, but Steve was thinking as others would think. However, Steve did not hold those thoughts for long. Steve knew what he wanted and went after it -- Carmel, along with her baggage -- her weight!
Ms. Jackson really captured the essence of true love in this one. It should be an inspiration to women, not only to the full figured women, but every woman. Everybody is somebody and if we will just be ourself, we can survive. As the saying goes, "If life gives you lemons, then make lemonade."
For the full-figured women out there, if you are feeling low or discouraged and you have not read Monica Jackson's "The Look of Love," get a copy, sit back, relax, and enjoy. It will truly be an enlightenment to you. And ... for those of us who are not categorized as "full-figured," this book is still an enlightenment. It lets us know that we are not the only females in the world that can turn a man's head -- even a fine man such as the likes of Dr. Steve Reynolds. Keep your chin up girls!
Again, good work, Ms. Jackson! A true eye opener!
