Nobody Ever Told Me I Might Not Get Married! - One Woman's Journey to Acceptance by Patrice Thomas Conwell is about the inevitable process of aging and being single, with no guy in sight, and slowly losing hopes of getting married. The theme is original and the author has shared a lot of emotional and personal feelings with readers. The author's thoughts of never finding a mate and having to stay single all her life make it an interesting theme. The book speaks about accepting what life has in store for us and if that means no knight in shining armor, then the term living 'happily ever after' applies in a different way altogether.

I found the book very engaging because the theme is unusual and original. It looks at the prospect of not being able to find a mate and the possibility of remaining single forever in a good way, without being whiny or negative about it. It is an entertaining book for both married and unmarried women. The title throws you off a bit, but it is a book I would recommend to all women out there. The personal anecdotes shared by the author make it more relatable. The author conveys to readers the power of acceptance in life and embracing it instead of fighting it all the time. The author's journey will help many unmarried women come to terms with their single status.

Even though I'm a married woman (now), I must say, I really enjoyed reading this book from beginning to end. Admitting, was hesitant about the title but as the read began, I was like hmmm interesting.
I told some friends married & still single, this book is a good read, you should check it out :-)

Natosha Matthews

Great book! It helped me come to terms that I may never get married but that's ok; I'm still happy!

This book brings into the discussion the possibility of never getting married. A possibility that no woman wants realized. Great discussion.
