What a great story, especially for young, married, career women -delicately balancing their two roles, responsibilities, desires and dreams - or someone entering that part of life.

Billy (one of three sisters given a boy's name) works in PR. She is unhappy! She wants to be promoted. She wants her husband to be more attentive. She wants her mother to "get a life." She wants to find her father.

The Night I Got Lucky for Billy was a very unlucky night because everything that she wanted - came true. Morale of the story: Watch what you wish for, because you might get it.

Caldwell captured the different aspects of parental abandonment, sagging marriage and being unfulfilled at work.

NOTE: Prudish me was disappointed that the author added the "F" word three times - when not needed, even for affect. Geez. There is, however, an important "f" word that changes her life.

Armchair Interviews says: A good read, well-written. Lots to think about for any age, whether single, newly or long-married, about what"s important in this human job of juggling priorities and people, along with being in control of your own life. Billy wanted... but did nothing about it, until the "night she got lucky."
