Week four of Book Bonanza is upon us and another book is due. This week's treat is Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen (read my review here).
While this book was not quite my cup of tea, it is beautifully written with some really funny scenes. It is not a YA (Young Adult) book, though. So I would not recommend it for young readers, although I think it would be mostly OK for someone age 17 and over. Here is a little taster for you:
"Sometimes you have to go back to move forward. Rhoda Janzen had reached a crossroads: she had just hit forty when her brilliant husband of fifteen years left her for a guy he met on Gay.com. In the same calamitous week she was hospitalized in a horrible car accident. With no alternative, Rhoda decided to pack her bags and head home, into the welcoming arms of the Christian community she once couldn't get away from fast enough. Her Mennonite family. While Rhoda Janzen might be a bad Mennonite, her parents and their community welcome her back regardless. And in this safe place, Rhoda could come to terms with her failed marriage; her desire, as a young woman, to leave her sheltered world behind; and the choices that both freed and entrapped her."
