A month ago, I wrote a book review for Jen Weaver’s excellent book, A Wife’s Secret to Happiness. Today, I have the privilege of having Jen over at my blog for a Q&A about her book so you can get a glimpse into her heart behind the writing. Enjoy!
1. Why did you decide to write this book?

The truth is I recently read a fiction book that I did not love at all, but as it’s probably not likely my readers would pick that book up anyway, why waste your time telling you why you shouldn’t bother? Someday I might unfavorably review a popular book, but it’s been a while since I’ve read a popular book I didn’t like–before I started reviewing anyway.
