This review is from: The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert (Kindle Edition)
Life is stranger than fiction as shown by this story of how a thirty-something, feminist Professor of English in a lesbian partnership became a convinced Christian now married to a the (male) pastor of a Reformed church. She lost her job, her friends. her home - in fact everything except her dog, when she became convinced that the message of the New Testament is true. She refers to her conversion experience as the "train wreck" of her life.

She writes well and there are some very memorable and pithy aphorisms along the way, as she has lost none of her ability to engage in trenchant critique - of the follies of contemporary Christian culture every bit as much as of her former feminist creed. My particular favourite is " I have always been wary of groups were everybody thinks the same as this usually means there is no thinking going on at all". Her compassion and love for her former sisterhood also shine throughout. A gripping and unusual read.
