A fantastic book with a dry humor that kept me laughing nonstop. At the same time, this author hides truths that makes this book wonderfully down to earth revealing a God who accepts us flawed humans and loves us with our shortcomings.
All through this book the reader keeps wondering how long Mandy is going to continue to cow-tow to her no good husband. She hunts, dresses game, tans leather, chops wood and all this while tending to 2 small toddlers and expecting a third. The scene where she is chopping wood and her water breaks prior to her baby's birth is really out in left field to me. She seems to be getting more and more paranoid as the book goes along and I wonder at the wisdom of Tom's continuing to pursue her. The book has a few unexpected turns which prove interesting, but the ending is not quite what I expected. It was sort of lack-luster after the buildup in the book.
