Mennonite in a Little Black Dress Book Review

Now that I've lifted your spirits with the previous book I'm going to tickle your funny bone! Rhoda Janzen reminds me of some of my favorite bloggers with her sense of humor and writing style. For you that are quick with your whit you'll be busting a gut while the rest of us are catching up laughing along with you.

Do you ever feel like running away and going home? Hello have you seen the name of my blog? I wish to runaway often, but not so sure I would run away to home or want what happens Rhonda to make one do so. Ok so you've think you saw it all with reality shows and the infamous Jerry Springer show, but poor Rhonda's life turns into one that could give either of those a run for their money. Shortly after her 40's birthday she's about had it, not only did her husband of 15 years leave her for Bob (yes not Bobby ... Nope Bob as in boy Bob), she then she is terribly injured in a car accident. So she does what any grown woman would do pack her bags and return home!

This is not your typical memoir it is packed with humor and parents that are out of this world. A little over the top may just be what you need when your world seems to be crashing down around you. But never fear you can always date your second cousin you know because he owns a tractor ... LOL. Believe me you need to read this to find out that story and all the other wacky and funny things that will happen along the way!

Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home for $22.00 or on sale right now at Amazon for 14.96 or on Kindle for $9.99

Thank you to Henry Holt and Company for this amazing book that had me up late laughing and covering my mouth so I won't make the kids up. I was given a book only to review and give my personal experience and thoughts. No money was given for my review.


  1. I just won this one and am looking forward to reading it.

  2. Sounds like a great read! I like books that make me laugh!

  3. Sounds like a fun book. Wish I had time to read...gave it up for Advent. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sorry it was in such a sorry state. Not great for first impressions after stalking 'kys."


Commments welcome, helps me know the people in the wall really do exsist!
