Three Good Things by Wendy Francis

At the end of every day, you can always think of three good things that happened.

Ellen McClarety is recently divorced from Max- a man she loves; but with his quick get rich schemes- life was hard. And it took a toll on their marriage- with her being the responsible one. After divorcing Max, Ellen finds herself the owner of the Singular Kringle. Ellen has put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into making the Singular Kringle a place to come to, a place to find friendly faces, sweet treats and a tip for the day. Her hard work is paying off- and she’s beginning to feel really good about everything- until an email arrives.

Lanie, Ellen’s sister, is married, a lawyer, and has an adorable baby boy. Lanie is fighting the working vs mother issue- she’s feeling stressed about the hours at work and knowing that she’s missing out on important things at home with the baby. Between work and being a mother- Lanie’s missing out on husband/wife time- and begins to wonder about the state of her marriage.

With Ellen trying to balance a business and have a personal life; and Lanie trying to work, be a good mother and a wife- they rely on their mother’s advice about looking for 3 good things in the day. Between the advice and the sisterly bond- even the things that appear to be daunting or worrisome, can be overcome.

Three Good Things reminds readers that there should be a balance to life, that there will be sorrow, there will be happiness- but that life is like a kringle- no one ingredient should outweigh the others.
