Mennonite in a Little Black Dress is a memoir of Janzen's return to her roots after surviving a car crash and divorce. She takes time to recoup and write while staying with her Mennonite parents back home. The stay is a healing process as she revisits old memories and experiences life's funny turns.
I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars. The author definitely has a life that would be considered book worthy. Many of her stories are funny and make you appreciate the small things different people bring to our lives. Sometimes I felt like she was trying to be funny too often though and her stories didn't flow well. She uses a lot of big words that I didn't know, so this would probably be a good book if you are studying for the GRE. lol. I probably wouldn't recommend this book as a good read, but I did enjoy parts of it.
