Editorial Reviews

Ronda Chervin
I bet you never have read a single book about a woman grad student in philosophy! Even if you were never one yourself, as I was, this book will intrigue you no end as something about any young woman in a primarily male career setting. Rollicking wit is complemented by a deep analysis of the role of women. I recommend it for all university women, students and professors and dare university men to read it to understand the other sex better.

When I heard about Regina Doman’s new novel, written with Rebecca Bratten Weiss, Catholic Philosopher Chick Makes Her Debut, I was ALL ABOUT reading it.
Here’s the gist of my review: I LOVED IT. (Yes, in all caps. No apologies.)
Here’s why...

Meet the Author

Rebecca Bratten Weiss grew up in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina and Ohio. After completing her homeschool studies, she pursued her B.A. and M.A. in philosophy at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and is still trying to finish her Ph.D. in Literature from University of Dallas. She has worked as a landscaper, horse trainer, bartender, cook, theatre costumier, and professor. She comes from a long line of Jewish grandmothers, though she has not (yet) experienced “The Tingling.” Currently she resides in Hopedale, Ohio, with her husband Brendan and three children Dominic, Avila and Gideon. She works part-time teaching English at Franciscan University, part-time as an organic gardener, and full-time as a domestic diva. In her spare time she rides horses and writes poems. She considers herself a renaissance woman, which is just a fancy way of saying she lives in a condition of perpetual chaos.

Regina Doman grew up in Philadelphia, worked in New York City as an assistant editor, but alas, has never achieved truly elegant sartorial style, despite occasionally perusing glossy magazines in an attempt to Learn Something About Fashion. She however, did meet and marry the Perfect Guy, at least for her, and he is very handsome and devout, plus he kindly edits her manuscripts. Regina has written a bestselling book for children and several well-received books teens: this is her first attempt at writing a story for adults. When not writing or editing books and manga comics, Regina helps her husband attempt to civilize their abundance of children on a homestead in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley while seeking to achieve her ideal Happy Weight.

    Loved it!

    I totally loved this book! It was really funny! I loved the plot. I especially liked that it goes into the interesting personalities of the different characters. Cate seems like such a real person. Her sarcasm and attitude towards Sean make her sort of like a modern Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice). There are definitely aspects of her personality that I can relate to. I can also relate to the dramatic aspect of Portia's personality. I really liked that there was some actual philosophy thrown in. However, the plot and characters are still down to earth. I appreciated that while Cate has high ideals, she is just as human as everyone else. I will definitely recomend this book to my friends.
