Overview

"It is rare that I literally laugh out loud while I'm reading, but Janzen's voice singular, deadpan, sharp-witted and honest slayed me." Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love"

Not long after Rhoda Janzen turned forty, her world turned upside down. It was bad enough that her husband of fifteen years left her for Bob, a guy he met on Gay.com, but that same week a car accident left her injured. Needing a place to rest and pick up the pieces of her life, Rhoda packed her bags, crossed the country, and returned to her quirky Mennonite family's home, where she was welcomed back with open arms and offbeat advice. (Rhoda's good-natured mother suggested she get over her heartbreak by dating her first cousin he owned a tractor, see.)

Written with wry humor and huge personality and tackling faith, love, family, and aging "Mennonite in a Little Black Dress" is an immensely moving memoir of healing, certain to touch anyone who has ever had to look homeward in order to move ahead."
