The Reluctant BloggerBook - 2013
"For a thirty-something Latter-Day Saint Gen-Xer, Todd Landry couldn't have been more stereotypical. He had the perfect family with slightly more children than the national average; a heritage rich with pioneer ancestry; and a four-bedroom house in suburbia heaven--otherwise known as Gilbert, Arizona. But nine months ago, on a night that continues to haunt his dreams, Todd's wife died unexpectedly--and suddenly everything changed. Now, to his utter humiliation, Todd is seeing Dr. Melvin Schenk, a Jewish psychiatrist who requires Todd to blog regularly as a means of breaking through his aversion to therapy. Through his blog posts, Todd reveals: his uncomfortable reentry into the world of LDS singles and dating, the overwhelming odds he faces as a newly-minted single parent, the difficulty of living up to unrealistic expectations, and the crushing realization that the life he once idealized might not have been as picture perfect as he believed" --
