Item description for The Deflowering of Rhona Lipshitz by Lisa Lieberman Doctor...
Rhona Lipshitz of Queens, New York is eleven days away from becoming Mrs. Stuart Martin Weiner. The Temple has been booked, gowns have been fitted and beauty parlor appointments have been made. The caterer is busy preparing chicken and rice dinners - which in Rhona's neighborhood means ninety per cent rice and ten per cent chicken. Only one small problem stands in the way of this perfect marriage: Rhona doesn't love Stuie, and she knows she never will. With no way out, Rhona gamely counts down the days to the dreaded event...and finds herself falling madly, hopelessly in love with a wonderful man. Too bad it's not Stuie.

Treat Yourself To A Beautiful Story Mar 9, 2006
I loved this book. It was funny, profound and authentic. Rhona is a great character. Her challenges are hysterical and touching. The resolution is uplifting and spirit filled. I only hope Lisa Lieberman Doctor continues to share Rhona's journey with us in other books and on film.
