I originally posted some of this review on Amazon in November 2015 (right after the book was released), and it bears repeating now because I’m about to read it again. Yes it’s that good!

Falling Down Girl

Cheri L.R. Taylor’s book needs to come with a warning … something like “Do not read this book in a crowded room; you will be forced to stop reading to explain why you are laughing until the tears roll or gasping as you hold your breath in anticipation of the fresh embarrassment coming up as you turn the page.” Or something like that.

I love how the author writes so I can see and smell the surroundings, and almost taste the mother’s cooking. But most of all I love how much I can relate to the insecurities and social bumbling within the story. This is a must read for anyone who often feels like a social klutz even when they’re around friends and family. It will have you laughing, not only at the story but at yourself. And I’m all for anything that makes us go easier on ourselves.

This book makes Bridget Jones’ Diary look tame! I think I can skip my next few ab workouts … I was laughing so hard my stomach muscles hurt the next day.

This is my favorite book of the year decade!

The Cottage Wife

In addition to hiking, biking, reading and writing, I like to focus on making as light an impact on the land possible, while still living a modern life.


Who is The Cottage Wife?

Hi! I'm Carol - The Cottage Wife. My husband Brian and I had a cottage on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada for over 10 years. It turns out that we love the area so much we're going to build our forever (retirement) home here. I thought it would be fun to share some of our adventures with you. One of the things we really want to focus on is making as light an impact on the land as we can, while still living a modern life. We'll see how that goes!
