Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Amanda Bright@Home

In Washington DC, thirty-five years old Amanda wonders if that is all there is in life. Currently, she is a mom raising two small children while her brain atrophies and sex when she can find her spouse Bob is typically “kid interuptus”. Bob works for the Justice Department where he heading up an antitrust investigation against MegaByte.

He is so engulfed in his work, Bob is clueless that Amanda is unhappy, depressed and perhaps nearing collapse. She cringes every time she sees her husband on the news as he has made something of himself while her degree serves as toilet paper. Amanda even dreams of returning to the NEA where she once was gainfully employed. Will Bob see the dual lights in the tunnel of the onrushing train in time to help Amanda before she suffers a breakdown and before he leads the Un-American attack on big business?

Though married with children, AMANDA BRIGHT@HOME is a chick lit tale focusing on the woes of the lead female character. Readers will feel for Amanda when her depression seems overwhelming and she cannot breathe, but also wonder over how trivial the cause of the collapse seems. Still readers who believe that a family can save everyone within the unit will savor this tale. Pragmatists, centrists, and the left will prefer Dan Quayle for their family value treatise.
