Marcellina I really enjoyed this book, Rhoda writes about a sub-culture that I have always been interested in; small religious communities. She is a true insider; her father is a well-respected preacher and life-long member of the community, and Rhoda's writing comes from a place of true love and respect. But she has also lived in the "real world", and observes and writes as a true academic. Lots of humor and poignant observations make this a really relatable story.
