About L.M. Stull

A Washington, DC native, L.M. Stull spends her days chained to a desk at a law firm in southern Virginia. When she’s not feverishly taking orders from attorneys, she writes. Her stories tell of the human spirit – sometimes sad, sometimes not – most can relate to them on some level or another.

Review by: Alex Laybourne on Dec. 31, 2011 :
Never before has a novel moved me to tears. Yet there were at least three instances where I needed to wipe my eyes whilst reading.

LM Stull has created with her debut novel something that will last for the ages. A work of literature that men and women around the world can relate to on numerous personal levels. A novel about triumph and the hardships that line the path.

The road to Hell may be paved with good intentions, but LM stull reminds us that the road to happiness is paved with hardship. It is unavoidable, and while there may be potholes in the road that we see in time and can avoid, certain humps and bumps will always come along and derail us when we least expect them.

Never before have I read a novel so quickly, nor wanted to re-read it so soon. It took me less than two days to read, and I am certain it will remain with me forever.

Review by: Jeffrey Pfaller on Dec. 29, 2011 :
I usually don't dip into the literary romance genre, but L.M. Stull's book was a pleasant surprise and has inspired me to check out a few more titles like hers. It has lots of heart and just the right amount of sugar - the perfect book for burrowing into a warm corner of your house and reading it cover to cover. Even though the main character, Hope, has seen more than her fair share of hard times, the book focuses on the upswing and her struggles to get back to happy. I don't recommend many books to my wife, but I'll definitely give her A Thirty-Something Girl.

Review by: Karpov Kinrade on Dec. 20, 2011 :
This beautifully written novel focuses on Hope, a girl who has almost lost all hope in life. Having hit rock bottom and gone through tragedy after tragedy, Hope discovers the importance of friendship and how to love again and open herself up to new directions in life.

L.M. Stull proves herself to be an amazing writer and story-teller in this gem of a novel. Heartbreaking and heartwarming, Hope's journey becomes all of our journey and takes the reader through all the highs and lows of life. The best part of this book for me was the relationships between Hope and her friends, and the tenderness with which her new love blossoms. Stull has found her voice in this debut novel and I can't wait to read more from her.

Well, I finally finished reading A Thirty-Something Girl round about midnight. This is not my normal reading genre but I could not put it down. I was sorry to part with the character Hope. She came alive for me in a way few characters have...thank you Lisa for the introduction. I recommend this read to all.
