Leah’s Husband Is Dead – Again!

Synopsis: This is Leah Barrie’s journal, and we get to read it. It’s set in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s; a time when life was very conservative and women were barely tolerated in the workforce. This journal was a gift for Leah’s 21st birthday. Reluctantly, she begins writing and revealing her innermost thoughts about life; her Irish family; her highly religious grandmother; her crazy adventures with co-workers and friends; annoying bosses and landlords; and most importantly – the great loves of her life. Who, or what, constantly removes those loves from her life leaves Leah asking, “Why does it always happen to me?” Through it all, her sense of humor prevails giving her strength and an undying belief in love and life.
