Year Published: 2018

Genre: Auto-biography


The 47 days of Me is a celebration of myself and a reflection upon my past, present and future. Like many women recovering from a second divorce, I was feeling blue and getting older was not helping. My 47th birthday was approaching, and I was dreading it. Instead of crawling into my shell and letting life pass me by, I chose to exploit my birthday. The next 47 days were going to be all about me. Trying new things or doing something out of the ordinary to expand my comfort zone was key. I made new friends and had numerous dates. I threw in a little travel, new adventures and simple pleasures.

Following me through my journey of making the most of everyday, looking for love through online dating, scrutinizing new gray hairs and fine wrinkles, and fretting about being single and alone. The 47 Days of Me is a relatable story that many women will relate to.

About the Author:

Laura Kelly always wanted to be a writer and finally made that dream a reality when her first book, Splintered Reflections, was published in August 2016. Laura continues her love of writing with her second book, 47 Days of Me. While Splintered Reflections is a fictional book, 47 Days of Me, is semi-autobiographical memoir, and the first of Laura's trilogy that journals the trails and tribulation of finding herself and love.

Currently Laura Kelly is a project manager, fitness instructor extraordinaire, and social butterfly, but is anxious for her retirement so that she can immerse herself into writing more.

My Take on the Book:

The author ends up having some wonderful clarifying thoughts; and I really, really appreciated and resonated with Day 6, since it’s something that I would like to bring into my own life. I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:

It was really nice reading another book from this author again; and I enjoyed both in their own ways. I most certainly can’t wait for the next book that comes out.
