In “Why Bother?” personal-growth expert Jennifer Louden challenges you to open your mind, your heart, and your life by following where the question leads. ... Louden demonstrates why it's important to bother after creative faceplants, professional defeats, heartbreak, illness, and loss.
I ended my own book with the words, ‘Now what?’ When I picked up Jennifer Louden’s book, I felt as if it were a follow-up to my own question. Why Bother? spoke to me as if I were speaking to myself (in a loving voice, instead of the jerky one) and it has become my guide, my map, my bible, my confidante. I want everyone I know to own a copy as tattered as mine.
― Jennifer Pastiloff, author of On Being Human
Praise For Willa’s Grove:
''Women have always searched for community during life's critical crossroads, but it's the rare novel that nails the tone and tempo of what it feels like to embed with kindred spirits and share stories, joys, and fears from the heart. Every reader will relate to this beautiful story in powerful and personal ways. I cherished my time with Willa's Grove, sitting in this circle of women who, by the end, felt like best friends.'' -- Lee Woodruff, #1 New York Times bestselling author
''This is the novel we need right now. Willa's Grove is an affirmation of creativity, sisterhood, and the power of belonging. The simple act of taking care of one another moves mountains. Don't tell anyone, but I think Laura Munson might have just made me a better person.'' --Chelsea Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Heartsick and others
