Review for 51 ½ Shades of Brown:

The book, 51 ½ Shades of Brown, is a collection of colorful, candid, humorous, and sometimes scandalous tales of an imperfectly-perfect marriage masterpiece. Mr. and Mrs. Brown share their successes and failures, victories and defeat, joy and pain, and the lessons learned along the way.
