Modern Catholic Chick Lit

Part of the creation of a new genre within Catholic publishing? For the modern Uhmerican woman who is yearning for more. But is it enough? Spiritual reading for Uhmerican Catholics?

I don't know if she makes this claim, but the marketing surrounding the book may seem like it - "You can have it all, if you become Catholic!" (or find God) It may seem that Boethius made a similar claim with respect to God in Consolation of Philosophy, but he may actually be equivocating on some of the words he used (all/every) with respect to the Good that is God. Does she renounce the Uhmerican feminist program, that would seem to characterize the goals of her life prior to conversion?
