Reeling from these changes, she decides to make a giant sprawl backwards and return home to her long-left-behind Mennonite family. Her adult retreat to this austere religious community may have begun as a desperate measure, but in this memoir it becomes both a surprisingly stabilizing experience and an often-hilarious experiment in mutual understanding.
