Laughter is the best medicine and "Theodora's Diary" proves to be the tonic for whatever ails you. I came across this gem of a book two weeks ago after having a frustrating day in "stay at home wife/mommyland". It saved my sanity! The book is written in the style of "Bridget Jones Diary" with a Christian theme. You will laugh till your sides hurt or until your neighbors will think you have "gone 'round the bend" as you read about Theodora's life. The characters are memorable, the comic timing is perfect and the message is relevant for today's women. Grab a chocolate bar, curl up in your armchair and enjoy the laughter!
Hilarious book! Theodora is just like me...if I was British. The Bridge Jones formula works well in this book. I laughed at Theo's mom and her Greek tendencies. Imagine having a name like Agemmennon! The portrayal of very conservative and stay at home moms was accurate along with the reaction of those not comfortable with it. I was glad to read Theo's sister's response to Charity chastising her for not staying at home after she has the baby. Theodora is proud that she worked hard to have her job and people like Charity shouldn't put her down for not being like her. The Kevin "Fever Pitch" storyline was great too. I went out and rented the DVD after reading the book (I had no idea Colin Firth was in it!) This book makes me want to have a British accent.
