Item description for The Boys' Club by Diane T. Dignan...
Alex has invested over ten years developing an engaging and successful consulting career. A single woman, Alex is free from the encumbrance of husband and children and possesses knowledge passed down from her mentor, Riley O'Conner. Her promised promotion to Senior Consultant and a place on the most coveted team in the firm is evident. The crowning achievement of her career and a promising romance set Alex's dreams in motion until a series of events keep them at bay. Resolution enables Alex to persevere the disintegration of trust and security in her professional and personal life. Yet the act of guiding her widowed mother through suppressed grief and the discovery of her dearest friend's hidden heartache open her soul to true essence of who she is and what she values most. A story rich with yearning, loss, acceptance and hope, The Boy's Club speaks to the determination of every woman striving to fill the intrinsic desires of her heart.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Boys' Club?
One book, one Saturday cover to cover read Jul 17, 2005
I picked up my issue from Diane while attending the Art in the Park show in Plymouth MI. After reading just a small write up without opening the book, I felt a connection. Little did I know how much of the book seemed to have mirrored much of the last 17 years of my life.
The story, the characters, the lesson learned (for those like myself that see one even if it wasn't necessarily there) this book is one to be shared with others. In a different way it was hard to put this book down for the most basic reasons which is why I still read it cover to cover yesterday.
Well done and thank you Diane, I look forward to reading more of your work.
Details make the difference Mar 17, 2005
From the pink pillbox hat that reminds the main character of her grandmother to the pinch of sand held in a locket, the small details makes the story endearing. Sure to be a success, The Boy's Club is not to be missed.
Enjoyed this one! Mar 4, 2005
Diane Dignan creates a memorable character in Alex, a young woman who finds herself challenged on all fronts in her life - from her mother, to her love life, her own grief over the loss of her father and to top it all off, a precarious situation at the office. Diane has crafted a strong character who seems to still be a bit of a hopeless romantic, and very endearing. I found myself really enjoying the journey Alex takes.
One of the best books I have read in a while Mar 3, 2005

Don't Read Before You Go To Sleep Jan 23, 2005
I found that The Boys' Club was riveting. I recommend it to any lady who remembers what hitting the glass ceiling is like, and how much it hasn't changed. The Good Ole Boy Network still runs the majority of the businesses, and women must be careful in how they present themselves and how they climb the corporate ladder to achieve the same results as men. I liken The Boys' Club to my business experience while living in Houston, Texas during the 1980's. Thanks Diane for a job well-done and written exceptionally well.
