What made him feel whole was something he never expected. Thirty-one-year-old Marc Nussbaum has visions of enjoying the finer things in life after building a successful landscaping business—no dependents, no commitments outside of work, no worries. And he’s found the perfect woman to enjoy it with him. But when his dysfunctional family members come to him in serious trouble, he repeatedly shoves his own life aside to run to their aid. After losing sight of his own dreams and his girlfriend, Marc must decide whether to continue saving his relatives from their ill-fated lives, or save himself from entering into a life of self-sacrifice and missed opportunities. But when he finally realizes his purpose in life and how to achieve self-fulfillment, it isn’t at all what he had previously envisioned.

REGARDING ANNA is an intelligent read, with a lot of heart and a dose of humor. Osmund is a master at weaving complicated, unexpected plot developments and twists and turns that readers just don’t see coming.

RED CLOVER is a beautiful moving story that gently absorbs you into the lives of the characters.

DAUGHTERS. Civil rights, gender roles, and political postures are carefully, realistically, and sensitively present in this story.

THE COACH HOUSE is a superbly written book that will leave the reader thinking about relationships, adversity, independence and growth, and prejudices.

This book actually reminded me of me many years ago, wanting to help everyone, clearly codependent. A person who did not love myself because I was looking for love and approval from others. So it was a little sad for me to remember back to that time in my life.
This book shows that establishing boundaries, being clear with thoughts and words and always trying to do the “right thing”, helps everyone.

If I could rate this book a 10 star I would. There are millions of people out there that will be able to relate to the
family dynamic’s in this book. Like her other books her characters have depth and you can easily put yourself in their positions in life.
This book incorporates two major diseases that are so rampant in our world and Florence Osmund has shown us how these individual’s
dealt with it on a day to day basis. I personally couldn’t turn the pages fast enough and I reminded myself of the slogan..One Day At A Time.
Thank you for another wonderful book.

Florence Osmund’s latest book is Living With Markus. As in her other books, her characters have depth, and ethical dilemmas are confronted. I thought I might not be able to relate to a male being the main character, but Markus proved me wrong.
Family dynamics, and family secrets are always intriguing, and make this book a page turner. After you read a book by Florence Osmund, you will be impatient for her to finish her next book. This book is a very good read.
