Book Review/Giveaway: Leftovers: A Novel by Arthur Wooten. Ends April 15th
Leftover: A Novel by Arthur Wooten
About the Book: Vivian Lawson’s fantasy of being the perfect 1950s suburban housewife is shattered when an uncontrollable event changes her life forever.
Destitute and left to fend for herself in a man’s world, she searches her New England town unable to find a job. With nowhere to turn, Vivian takes the advice of her wisecracking best friend, Babs, and reluctantly becomes a Tupperware lady.
Vivian struggles with low self-esteem as well as stage fright but with the support of Babs’ lovesick brother, Stew, and the creator of Tupperware’s Home Party Plan system, Brownie Wise, she may just find the strength to conquer her inner demons and take control of her life.
A story of empowerment, Leftovers is a delectable romantic dramedy with an inspirational journey that reveals to us what can be achieved by using one’s guts, determination and a little bit of a self-deprecating humor. http://www.arthurwooten.com/
My Review: I really enjoyed reading about Vivian Lawson, a 1950s suburban housewife. An inspirational journey about one woman who rose above marital problems and a heartless mother to become a very well know Tupperware lady.
Things started to fall apart one day for Vivian when she stayed up waiting for her cheating husband to return from work to celebrate their anniversary, only to turn up very late. In the morning, her husband Paul broke the news to her that he was leaving her for another woman.
Devastated and broke with the bank taking her house and unable to find work, Vivian found herself living with her best friend Babs and her brother Stew who suggested that she become a Tupperware lady.
This is a well written novel by Arthur Wooten, showing the strength of Vivian Lawson from heartbreak to redemption and finding true love. This novel is truly a leftover you just can’t help but to pick it up again and again to read.
I highly recommend this book for every household with a woman living in it.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
