She lived by her mantra, "To be beautiful is the birthright of every woman. Miss Arden created skin care products that benefited, not masked, the skin.

For Deena Munger, the transformation to underappreciated housewife was subtle and gradual. Not that she didn't love her family dearly, but Deena was starting to wonder: When did I disappear? And how come I never even noticed? Then one day she stuns her family by volunteering to raise a puppy for K-9 Eyes for the Blind. Suddenly, Deena's once-stable life is turned upside down. And, it turns out, this rambunctious, impulsive ball of fur could actually be the damage control she needs to save her family, her marriage, and her self.

Since others have done a synopsis of this book, I won't. Instead I'll say it's one of the best books I've read in a long time. It's been on my to-be-read shelf for a while now -- I buy so many books I can't read them all -- but I finished a book yesterday and began this one last night. I've already read half of it. I simply didn't want to turn out the light and go to sleep. It's beautifully written, funny, touching, and filled with so many truths about life, love, and being a woman. I was laughing out loud, to the point my husband wanted to know what was so funny. Bravo, Ms. Wrenn. I hope you write many more books. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I really loved this book. It is truly for women - if you are a woman that loves dogs you must
read this book. A friend loaned it to me and I ended up ordering it from Amazon to keep for myself. I have also given it as gifts to several of my friends who enjoy my love for dogs. It is so truthful of a lot of women's lives - no one knows what we do until we don't do it.Around the Next Corner

A friend gave me this book to read because I had just gotten a yellow lab puppy. Reading the book was like re-living those first few days with the puppy. The author really makes you experience the fun and the work of having a new puppy.

The characters in the book were well-drawn -- I believed in the mom who was feeling as though she had given up her own life for those around her, and suddenly found herself feeling not noticed and not important. For her, getting a seeing eye dog puppy to take care of is a step in the right direction, and as she grows to learn to take control of her puppy, she also learns to take control of her own life.

This was an OK book. Not bad, easy to read, even made me cry in a few spots. But, it's not great. I think it is a nice mid-life crisis book for women and I love the central part with the dog. I wish that life and marriage were as easy to fix as was the case for the main character in the book - but still the storey is nice. A good weekend read if you're looking for something not too heavy and also isn't a bodice ripper.

Wonderful book about something wonderful to do with your life. It inspired me so much that I actually volunteered to raise a puppy who is now on her way to becoming a guide dog.

This book was both inspiring and entertaining. Raising a service dog was the challenge this woman needed to find a better life herself. Her inexperience with raising a puppy made me laugh but also explained how these dogs are trained. Her finding a way through her mid-life slump shows how finding a new direction is important. Really worth reading.

parts of it I thought were written about me! I liked it
Like many housewives, Deena Munger spends her days doing chores and taking care of her family which they take for granted. Somewhere along the way, she lost any semblance of being an individual. Hopes, dreams, even her personal preferences have all taken a back seat to the needs and desires of her family. Deena realizes that she's become non-existent as an indivdual and is desperately unhappy. Who'd have guessed that an afternoon eating corn pops and watching Oprah would be the catalyst that changes her life as well as the lives of those around her?

Heloise is a yellow Labrador puppy. She's only ten weeks old when she comes to live with Deena and her family. Heloise is little more than a ball of energetic fur with the honor of having been selected to be part of the K-9 Eyes for the Blind program. For approximately fourteen months, Heloise will live with the Mungers in their neat orderly world and ensure that life will change for them all in ways they never expected.

While Deena is trying to retrieve their Persian cat from the pots and pans cupboard she begins to wonder how her life turned out this way. She's a dog person, so why is she living in a cat world? She's even scrubbing the floor grout with a tooth brush. Sex has become a Saturday morning scheduled event, which she now has no interest in and does her best to avoid. Deena's disappeared, in her place is a shell of a woman who caters to the whims of her husband, children, and even the cat. However, none of them ever return the favor. Her feelings do not matter in the big scope of things, or do they? She couldn't forget the episode of Oprah she'd watched about `using your life.' After yet another day of ceaseless demands and the mundane existence that her life has become, Deena made a decision. She spent some time researching about getting involved in the K-9 Eyes for the Blind program, and even interviewed for raising a dog - all before telling any of her family about her desire to do so. None of them are pleased, it will disrupt their lives and they all know it. For once Deena is going to satisfy her own desires, and the family will just have to accept her decision. Will Deena's decision be the final straw in Neil and Deena's already crumbling marriage? Maybe it will provide a stepping stone to help breach the walls they've built between them.

I am so impressed with Elizabeth Wrenn's writing. She alternately had me laughing and crying all the way through AROUND THE NEXT CORNER. It's a poignantly sweet tale and many married women will be able to relate to Deena. Yes, Deena is menopausal, but I am not and I can easily see myself in her shoes. The chaos that seems to rein when Heloise joins the family is absolutely hilarious. I have visual images of this overweight cat living on top of a refrigerator and this puppy gleefully terrorizing it. Ms. Wrenn does a beautiful job demonstrating both the joy and the heartache in raising guide dogs. In the midst of all the pandemonium, Deena learns a few things about herself, life, and love which may just help glue her life back together.
