I loved this and it made me laugh and cry. I adore that the author read this book. The stories she shares are serious but she has a light hearted way of sharing parts of her life. I enjoy the flashbacks.
It's great to read another of Janzen ' s books after Little Black Dress. Humor, insight, and profound truth combine to put her in the category with Anne Lamott.
Janzen's previous memoir is a book I've re-read several times, so I was hopeful about this one. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the same strong narrative arc or the loveable characters - in describing her return to her Christian faith and cancer battle, J produces a book which is more like a self-help guide than story. I felt uneasy to discover that the born-again pentecostal she sent up so pointedly in the last book, is her Mr Right in this one. And, in the end, I missed the Janzen family, who were the stars of Little Black Dress.
