Overview
At the end of her bestselling memoir Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Rhoda Janzen had reconnected with her family roots, though her future felt uncertain. When this overeducated professor starts dating the most unlikely of men-a weight-liftin', church-goin', truck-drivin' rocker named Mitch-she begins a surprising journey to faith and love.

Nothing says, "Let's get to know each other " like lady problems on an epic scale, but Mitch vows to stay by her side. Convinced that his bedrock character has something to do with his Pentecostal church, Rhoda suits up for a brave new world of sparkler pom-poms and hand-clappin' hallelujahs.

Written with her trademark "uproarious, bawdy sense of humor" (Minneapolis Star-Tribune), MENNONITE MEETS MR. RIGHT is witty and moving, perfect for anyone who has taken an unexpected detour only to find that new roads lead to rich destinations.

Following up on the success of her previous memoir (Mennonite in a Little Black Dress), Janzen tackles her next set of difficult and joyful experiences with humor and gratitude. Once again single, the book begins with Janzen questioning her intellect after she develops an unlikely crush: “So when I found myself falling for a Jesus-nail-necklace wearing manly man, the kind whose hands were so huge they ripped his jeans pockets, I thought my common sense was all a-pother.” Janzen’s new love, a devoted Pentecostal, rekindles her lackluster feeling about religion and she delights in comparing her Mennonite faith to the brash style of Pentecostals. She also has to contend with a cancer diagnosis, her relationship with her new partner’s family, and arguments about premarital abstinence. With her usual sense of candidness and jest, Janzen worries about integrating a religious transformation into your social life: “How do you tell your Ph.D. friends, far-flung across the world at their various academic postings, that you are attending church on purpose?” She weaves her reevaluation of her belief system throughout the memoir. This is a joyful trek through one woman’s spiritual journey into a new life as a wife, stepmother, and believer. (Oct.)
