I signed up to review ‘Origin‘ as I don’t tend to read a lot of Women’s / Contemporary Fiction. After reading the blurb I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try something from a genre I don’t usually spend a lot of time reading. I’m not a reviewer that sticks to JUST the genres I love. Why not try something outside of your comfort zone? Sure, ya might struggle a little, but sometimes you’ll come across a book that you will enjoy just as much as the genre you favour.

Book Cover & Description:
Alexandra Kamin is every woman. At 42, she has a loving family, terrific children, a great career with a superlative income, a gorgeous face with a terrific figure, and a loving boyfriend. Most impressive is that she is in complete control of every ambit of her life.
Where do you go when you are at the top?
ORIGIN takes you back to the beginning… the beginning of Alexandra’s life in America, the beginning of the truest of love affairs, and the beginning of an entrepreneurial life. Through a series of flashbacks and conversations, Alexandra explains every nuance that made this beautiful family a dynasty that you want to root for.
Schooling, work, child rearing, and family affairs are all under Alexandra’s Order are all accounted for as the years go by. GNO, love affairs and the truest of loyalties are best second time around.
About Emilia I. Rutigliano:
Emilia I. Rutigliano is an attorney who writes about people that she finds interesting. Although her books are fiction, she weaves in a lot of the events of her own life, practice and travels. She lives in New York City with her husband and three precocious teenagers (who occasionally acknowledge her existence when the internet is malfunctioning).
ALEXANDRA’S ORDER is Emilia’s second book series, and is geared toward readers who enjoy a full story about multi-dimensional characters. Because ORDER takes place in many locations with many different cultures, Emilia doesn’t write it unless she visits each location and meets the people who speak, think and act the same way as the characters in the book. It’s a tough life, but she perseveres…
