Book Details


My name is Margaret Speicher, author of my first book entitled, “Love…One Lump or Two??” Although I have always had a life-long dream to write a book, I never thought that I would ever accomplish this seemingly impossible task. However, dreams sometimes come true - and for me, it took divine intervention!

It all happened one evening when I was awakened in the middle of the night by the Holy Spirit with His idea for me to write a book.  Waking somewhat confused by this encounter, I recall contemplating the idea of writing a book, but had no idea on a topic.  Almost immediately, an appropriate topic for the book, including a "catchy" book title and various chapter headings with details on my experiences in the dating world, surprisingly flowed very easily from my thoughts .  Maybe this was my destiny!

Upon awakening the next morning fully inspired and motivated by my newest endeavor, I immediately jotted down my thoughts from the previous night’s ideas for this book and began composing my thoughts onto paper.  Thus, an inspiring work developed about my humorous experiences and entertaining antics, challenges (lumps, as I call them) and opportunities that this determined blonde with a definite sense of humor and temporary misguided sense of direction from a recent divorce encountered.  In passionate pursuit of my person, or soul mate ("Mr. Right"), my journey began with the chapter on "The Date from Hell" involving many unforeseen happenings on an attention-grabbing double date, through the chapter on "Dating 101." This chapter describes fresh ideas and methods of surviving the singles' scene and meeting suitable men and more leading to the chapter on "Mr. Wonderful", my perceived soul mate from God - or was he?  Was this "Mr. Right?"  More chapters reveal many other twists and turns in finding love that will keep your interest peaked, leading to an inspiring ending!  

I truly believe that this entertaining and inspirational book was influenced by the Holy Spirit's early morning visit, and that I was destined to pursue publication to share my experiences that could help others who are undergoing similar problems in finding love and living alone.  I was successful in completing this task by accepting this unique challenge from the Holy Spirit, while constantly reminding myself throughout the process that “If God takes you to it; He will get you through it!”


Book Excerpt

“Love…One Lump or Two??” 
 Chapter-by-Chapter Synopsis

Chapter 1: Divorced…Now What???
This chapter depicts the challenges and opportunities that this young blonde, with a definite sense of humor, encountered in the single’s world following a long-term marriage. I soon learned that some of my new challenges and opportunities would uncover many unforeseen obstacles (lumps, as I call them) along the way.  Now What?

Chapter 2:  The Date from Hell!
Having met most of my initial priority needs, becoming more settled following my divorce and finding a compatible “running buddy” (Mamie), I was ready for some fun in the single’s world.  This entertaining chapter focuses on this blonde’s first date following divorce, which is described perfectly by the chapter title – “The Date from Hell”!  This is a got-to-read chapter!

Chapter 3:  Professional Single
Following the date from hell, Mamie and I devised methods of being more selective in our intensive search for “Mr. Right”.  This chapter details the variety of methods used in finding “Mr. Right”, all of which are too bold and humorous to mention here.  Enjoy!

Chapter 4:  Dating 101
Following experiences learned from the previous chapter, Mamie and I were better prepared and now ready  to apply our learned knowledge in meeting suitable men in hopes of encountering “Mr. Right”.  Details are amusingly divulged in this intriguing Chapter.

Chapter 5:  Mr. Wonderful
Following my dating adventures, I was successful in running into Mr. Wonderful – the man of my dreams sent from God in answer to my prayers – or was he?  This chapter charmingly details how I met Mr. Wonderful and provides all the humorous and gory details following a unique encounter with my perceived soul mate from God.  You do NOT want to skip this chapter!

Chapter 6:  Single Again…Lessons Learned
Well, as you can tell by the title of this chapter, Mr. Wonderful may not have been so wonderful.  After you read the chapter, you will understand why.

Chapter 7:  Determination/Self-Worth
This chapter focuses on each individual’s self-worth and determination and how both are necessary to live, grow, love and accept the challenges and opportunities that present themselves to us in our daily lives.

Very Enjoyable!
"Great book, a joyful twist on life after divorce. With determination and lots of prayers you can handle anything life can dish out. I would highly recommend reading this inspiring book."

Encouraging And Inspiring!
"I really enjoyed this book.  The author tells of her personal journey to find 'Mr. Right' adding fun and humorous stories along the way.  In the end, she realizes that she is 'all set' without him.  The last two chapters are encouaging and inspiring." 
“Thank you for taking time to read my book!”  I hope you enjoyed it!
