All people, especially women, have something in their life that they are not happy about

In her new novel “Cleopatra's New Attitude: Sometimes the grass is greener on the other side” (published by AuthorHouse), author Mercedes M. Alexander has crafted the compelling story of a woman who realizes that happiness and love can and will make a second appearance in her life.

Cleopatra Beavers is married because she thought she had to be. She is shown, offered and achieves another side of life that completes her as a woman and gives her the dream of a family and a soul mate.

An excerpt from “Cleopatra’s New Attitude”:

“‘Forbidden Fruit Creates A Strange Jam.’ Well ain’t that the truth, thought Cleopatra Beavers as she passed the sign on the local church marquee. It had been three weeks since she had decided to cool her friendship with Leonard Wilkins, and she was starting to think how close she had come to compromising herself over the last year. Moving on with her life was top priority for Cleo, but fate had other plans and things beyond her control would put her back in the path of the one man she had promised herself she would stay away from – Leonard Wilkins.”

“All people, especially women, have something in their life that they are not happy about,” Alexander says. “They believe they have to live with that something and make the best of things. This book teaches us that sometimes fairy tales do come true.”
