In one gestalt-jolting week from hell, Rhoda Janzen lost her spouse of 15 years to a guy he met on Gay.com; barely survived a head-on car crash with a drunk driver; and discovered that her husband's desertion has left her with a sky-high mortgage. Reeling from these changes, she decides to make a giant sprawl backwards and return home to her long-left-behind Mennonite family. Her adult retreat to this austere religious community may have begun as a desperate measure, but in this memoir it becomes both a surprisingly stabilizing experience and an often-hilarious experiment in mutual understanding. Mennonite in a Little Black Dress manages to amuse you while it warms your heart. Now in paperback.
