Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home
Dec 04, 2012
It seemed to me, through reading her words, that the author was truly healing from incredibly reeling life experiences. Not just one--but two in succession. I could feel her pain as I read, but a little bit of humor started peeking through at times. Not only did her husband leave her for a guy on Gay.com, but she was also in a devastating car accident, that left her crushed, broken in body, and lucky to be alive. As a woman, it is a blow to our egos when our husbands leave us for another woman--but another man? I cannot image this. Of course, the only place left for her to return to was her roots--a place she knew she would be accepted no matter what. This place was the Mennonite community in which she was raised--and rejected. She was welcomed by her family and friends with open arms and hearts. It was interesting to read about this cloistered community; how they live, work and love.
