Reflections on the Ring, a Book Review

Reflections on the Ring: An Ordinary Woman's Extraordinary Tale of How She Saved Her
Marriage and Her Family 
by Lori Colombo Dunham
Available at, $13.95

Reflections on the Ring is a vignette about an unexpected turn in a ladies night out. The women have gathered together to share their wedding albums when one woman admits she doesn't have pictures to share. Instead, she has a love story.

Told from author Lori Colombo Dunham's point of view, her tale is about how she married a man she hardly knew after conceiving his child. Fortunately, he is the kind of guy willing to start (or continue) a family, though she wonders if she's making a mistake by choosing to share her life with a complete stranger.  Through hard work and commitment, the couple make the marriage a success.

Sprinkled with quotes from various  self-help books and the Bible, each chapter ends with Reflections on the Ring, a few thoughts on what it takes to make a marriage 

In a "me first" society with so many examples of Bridezilla stories, it's refreshing to read about a woman who puts her marriage and her family at the top of her priority list.  The Reflections on the Ring provide a nice reminder (or possibly new information) to women who want the same thing. 

It's a quick read, and the author will hopefully put it on Kindle.
