A Dressed Up Mess

Allie West has it all – a good job, tons of friends, and a small close-knit family in Atlanta. On the cusp of her success, she cashed in her charmed life for love, and the check bounced. Now, she’s forced to hit restart. Midlife crisis? No, not for Allie. Life simply can’t happen this way for her, or so she thought. Take a trip with her as she finds herself back where it all began - at home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, literally in her parents’ house, starting over at nearly forty years old. Putting the pieces of her life together while dealing with family dynamics isn’t easy. Hometown issues she ran from years ago begin to resurface, not to mention the new ones with her children after escaping the harassment of an evil, abusive, manipulating ex. Allie ran from failure, inadequacy, rejection, and depression and hit the mall. Sure, she’s a mess, but she’s a dressed up mess. Follow her as she fixes her life or not.  Are you ready ?

“A phenomenal read! Allison has crafted a novel that tackles heavy issues such as mental health, familial ties, the cycles of abuse and sex in a raw, funny and meaningful way. It’s a bumpy journey many women can relate too, with a sweet destination. Worth the read! ” 

Hank Byrd, Filmmaker

“The beauty of this story is that it shows that even the strongest, most intelligent women can find themselves in the toughest of situations. As a mother, I related to the strong sense of protection for one’s children. As a woman, I understand how complex love can be. A great story of survival and not giving up on love. ” 

Nicole Standish, Playwright
