Fern Michaels isn t a person I m not sure she s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence Fern Michaels is what I DO Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I was born because according to him I was a dinky little thing weighing in at four and a half pounds However, I answer to Fern since people arecomfortable with a name they can pronounceAs they say, the past is prologue I grew up, got a job, got married, had five kids When my youngest went off to Kindergarten, my husband told me to get off my ass and get a job Those were his exact words I didn t know how to do anything except be a wife and mother I was also a voracious reader having cut my teeth on The Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Cherry Ames and the like The library was a magical place for me It still is to this day Rather than face the outside world with no skills, I decided to write a book For some reason that didn t intimidate me As my husband said at the time, stupid is as stupid does Guess what, I don t have that husband anyGuess what else I wrote books, most of them New York Times Best SellersMoving right along hereSeveral years ago I left Ballantine Books, parted company with my agent, sold my house in New Jersey that I had lived in all my married life and in moved to South Carolina I figured if I was going to go through trauma let it be all at one time It was a breeze The kids were all on their own at that point The dump was a year old plantation house that is listed in the National Registry that I remodeled Today it is beyond belief as are the gardens and the equally old Angel Oaks that drip Spanish moss Unfortunately, I could not get my ghost to relocate This ghost has been documented by previous owners Mary Margaret as we call her, is a friendly She is also mischievous It took me two weeks to figure out that she didn t like my coffee cups They would slide off the table or counter or else they d break in the dishwasher I bought red checkered ones All are intact as of this writing She moves pillows from one room to the other and she stops all the clocks in the house at in the am at least once a week When the Azaleas are in bloom, and only then, I find blooms on my night stand I have this glorious front porch and during the warm months I see my swing moving early in the morning when the air is still and again late in the day She doesn t spook the dogs I always know when she s around because the five of them line up and look like they re at a tennis match As of this writing we re co habiting nicelyMost writers love what they do and I m no exception I love it when I get a germ of an idea and get it down on paper I love breathing life into my characters I love writing about women who persevere and prevail because that s what I had to do to get to this point in time It s another way of saying it doesn t matter where you ve been, what matters is where you re going and how you get there The day I finally prevailed was the day I was inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame For me it was an awesome day and there are no words to describe itI ve been telling stories and scribbling for years I hope I can continue for another years It wasn t easy during some of those years As I said, I had to persevere My old Polish grandmother said something to me when I was little that I never forgot She said when God is good to you, you have to give back For a while I didn t know how to do that When I finally figured it out I set up The Fern Michaels Foundation READ FERN MICHAELS FULL BIOGRAPHY HERE.

    Book Title Family BlessingsAuthor Fern MichaelsGenre General Fiction, Humor Rating 1 Star Format Book on CDThis is probably the most ridiculously stupid book I ve read in a long time I suspect that it s supposed to be humorous, but it falls flat The only reason I think that it s supposed to be funny is that the plot is out of a sitcom, where nobody communicates and resorts to fisticuffs when faced with a conflict instead of working it out like grown ups Also, the book description says Book Title Family BlessingsAuthor Fern MichaelsGenre General Fiction, Humor Rating 1 Star Format Book on CDThis is probably the most ridiculously stupid book I ve read in a long time I suspect that it s supposed to be humorous, but it falls flat The only reason I think that it s supposed to be funny is that the plot is out of a sitcom, where nobody communicates and resorts to fisticuffs when faced with a conflict instead of working it out like grown ups Also, the book description says, heartwarming and hilarious Which it s not.The characters are immature and self centered They are stupid squared They jump to conclusions and instead of TALKING to the person they have the problem with, they go storming off into the night And the main character, Cisco, the grandmother, is supposed to be mature, but she s just as bad as the adult children The only person I actually liked in the story is Ezra, Cisco s boyfriend, who has a good head on his shoulders and at least doesn t contribute to the chaos The dad is kind of a minor character, but he was also a good person Why on earth did he let Cisco raise his children when his wife died And why do these adult triplets beat the crap out of each other all the time This is supposed to be FUNNY Everyone is bloodied and bruised, including the husbands of the two girls, who punch them in face and break their noses Spousal abuse is FUNNY Ugh Thank goodness it s only 5 CDs long, but I was skipping tracks just to get past the stupid parts

    This was the second book from Fern Michaels about the Cisco family No Place Like Home was a much better story This one did not have much of a plot It was not enjoyable when most of the book was the family fighting with each other.

    I don t usually take the time to review books but I felt a need here This book was terrible I usually hate putting a book away unfinished but I just couldn t handle it any the dialogue is repetitive, childish and insanely unrealistic The characters are whiny, and they resort to fist fights on a regular basis They run from every confrontation like children The pace of the book makes no sense at times I honestly couldn t handle it anyI ve got to say though, I m glad I tried it N I don t usually take the time to review books but I felt a need here This book was terrible I usually hate putting a book away unfinished but I just couldn t handle it any the dialogue is repetitive, childish and insanely unrealistic The characters are whiny, and they resort to fist fights on a regular basis They run from every confrontation like children The pace of the book makes no sense at times I honestly couldn t handle it anyI ve got to say though, I m glad I tried it Now I feel better about publishing a book myself one day I can write better than that

    I first picked this book up in the airport a couple of years ago I bought it because I had read Kentucky Rich by the same author and I had enjoyed that book Also, she is a best selling author Anyway, I finished this book on the return trip from Europe it was such an easy read, not much content or depth I kept waiting for a good plot to develop I would not recommend wasting your time on this one.

    Awful, boring, predictable, don t bother.

  9. says:

    I usually like Fern Michaels but this one is just too sweet and too obvious.

  10. says:

    I read this book hoping for a nice cozy Christmas book Like a Hallmark movie in book form What I got was a ridiculous mess that made no sense and I kind of wish I didn t finish it All the characters are caricatures, they have ridiculous problems that could easily be solved with simple discussions, and they get into fist fights with their spouses and siblings Things that are real problems, like a tornado, are dealt with easily On top of it all, the only Christmasy part is at the very end.
