Book: Mennonite In a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home
Author: Rhoda Janzen
Review: After her husband leaves her for a man he met on gay.com, Rhoda is in a bad car accident and finds herself living in a house she cannot afford. Moving back home to recoup, she pens a funny, heartwarming memoir about her life growing up in a Mennonite family as well as the history of her marriage.
I fell in love with Rhoda's family, especially her mother in this memoir. As the book unfolds, we learn Rhoda is not quite as innocent in the breakdown of her marriage as first assumed, which makes for an interesting read. Overall, funny and engaging.
