Women Home Alone: Learning to Thrive

Patricia Houck Sprinkle, Author Zondervan Publishing Company $12.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-310-20183-0
It would be difficult to find another book as detailed and complete in its subject area as this one is. All the spiritual and the practical problems women come up against in living alone are covered here without regard to whether ""alone"" means single, widowed, divorced or with a partner whose job often keeps him or her away from home. Using commonsense advice, Sprinkle deals with the myriad issues of childhood emergencies, finances, home and car repair, feelings of isolation and loneliness, all in a Christian context. There are numerous interviews with women who are alone, prayers are interspersed throughout, practical checklists appear and lists of recommended additional readings augment the whole. Because most women will, at one time or another, fall into the category of ""living alone,"" even if only temporarily, most will both enjoy and benefit from this book. (Mar.)
