Book Review: Please Don't Drink the Holy Water

Thoroughly amused.  That's how I would describe myself after having read Susie Lloyd's Please Don't Drink the Holy Water.  From start to finish I found myself laughing, crying from laughing and nodding my head in agreement with what she had to say.  I'm fairly certain that my kids, my husband and the neighbors all think I've gone off the deep end.  They're not used to seeing me laugh so much while reading a book.  I fielded way too many questions asking me if I was all right and what was so funny.  I suspected in most cases relating the humorous bit which sent me into hysterics would not merit laughter from the interested party given that they aren't mothers.  Any mother who has a sense of humor will have a hard time not laughing at this witty book.

The author infuses anecdotes from her life as a Catholic homeschooling mother of six girls with hilarious commentary of her dealings with her children, her husband and the members of the subversive "Real World" group "H.R.u.M.F. (Hairdressers, Relatives, und Malfunctioning Friends)."  She gives those of us who don't homeschool a peek into life as a homeschooling mother.  Her wry account sheds a spot light on a lifestyle choice which some of us who live in the "Real World" might want to assume.

I loved this book and I think it's every bit as good as her other book entitled Bless Me, Father, For I Have Kids.  I don't think you could go wrong with either of these books.

I was supplied with a complementary copy of Please Don't Drink the Holy Water by Sophia Institute Press in exchange for my honest review.

  1. I know Susie. She's just as real as her books. And her children are treasures, all seven of them. :-)
