I'll Have What She's Having
by Denise DiTrani, Deirdre Flanagan Ward
Welcome to the pages of a viciously brilliant read that strikes an emotional chord within all of us…the journey of life and the value of friendship. Through liberal doses of humor and irreverence, Deirdre and Denise invite us into their lives, hearts, and minds as they pledge the sorority of sisterhood and graduate from the university of adversity preparing them for a wild and wonderful life of diversity.
As they chronicle their personal experiences in a "Desperate Housewives" meets "Sex and the City" style, we are treated to invaluable lessons of faith, friendship, and fulfillment. These two sparkling female gems embrace the grindstone of life and choose to be polished rather than crushed. Deirdre and Denise continuously remind us that happiness is not found in the absence of conflict, but rather in the ability to cope with it. They do so in supreme style. Their amazing bond of friendship doubles their joy and divides their grief.
"I'll Have What She's Having" is a must read for all sexes, detailing the pleasures of life as they are truly what we make them. While rushing Alpha Chi Omega these two soul sisters sought the opportunities of a lifetime…twenty years later they've earned a masters in fulfillment. Their diploma of satisfaction is revealed in wanting what they have instead of having what they want!
