I signed up to review The Undertaker’s Wife: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Laughter in the Unlikeliest of Places because it is such an unusual story line, and I wanted to know how she would write a comedy around the death of her husband. Also, I’ve always wondered a bit about what it’s like to be on the inside of the funeral home business. I ended up devouring the book, and read it in one day.
She managed to make me smile when the circumstances were really quite shocking – or downright weird. She mixes humor with some really good advice as she shares stories of her life. I love that she turned to the Lord and prayer when she first needed help and comfort; and she continues to spend time with Him each day.
