This novel immediately hooked me with its atypical portrayal of a dissatisfied young woman in a rural New England town during the 1960s. Despite Eileen's life being mundane and disappointing, the author still finds a way to keep you holding on to every single word with complete captivation as Eileen strives to escape her monotonous life in hopes for something more interesting. ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp

A hilarious look into Lockwood's experience moving back in with her zany Catholic parents as a married adult. The author's father who just so happens to be an unconventional priest will simultaneously confuse you while leaving you in stitches because of his shenanigans. Easily one of the most unique and bizarrely charming memoirs I have ever read! ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp
