If I had the opportunity to give half stars, I would have rated this a tinge higher. This book's blurbs gave the impression that it was a humor book written by a woman whose husband left her for another man. As a result of an accident, she moves home to stay with her parents until she recovers physically. Although brought up as a Mennonite, she left her religion/cultural background behind her and now must cope with being immersed in it again. While there are some humorous moments, the book is at its best when the author is writing of the painful times and of learning to cope with the dissolution of her marriage.
