NotJustLaura’s Review: In this book, Mrs Ludy takes a look at what it means to live as a single.  Her style is still conversational and very readable and she tells many stories of women from the past and the present who have really made the most of their ‘single season’ by working for Christ.  Mrs Ludy is very ‘missions oriented’ and I did find this a bit off-putting as I’m more a ‘charity begins at home’ kind of person.  However, she does offer some very useful thoughts on being content as a single woman.  I am a little disappointed she didn’t say more about women who are single for life but, as that isn’t her own experience of life, I suppose this isn’t surprising.
