I'LL TAKE WHAT SHE HAS
Wilde’s latest novel touches on women, friendships and the wishes women have for themselves. With her easy, amusing narrative style, Wilde speaks the language of women and communicates what lies in their hearts. Add to that a strong, genuine plot with expressive, intelligent yet flawed characters at the center, and you have a gem of a read.
