In the intimate atmosphere of the all-women sleeping car - the 'Ladies Coupe' - Akhila asks the five women the question that has been haunting her all her adult life: can a woman stay single and be happy, or does she need a man to feel complete?

I thank Mr. Zidbeck for revealing such a vital person; he balanced well the use of dialog within the documentary format. -S. Richard Snodey, PE, LLB, PhD.; International Business CounselorLady Gemini, Book 2 is the equal of Book 1.

The reader is in for a read that's intense, moving, and thought provoking. -Phillip Stein, Chief of Operations, Ret., L.A. County Probation Dept.I really got into the character, Rose.
