Mrs. Hertz takes her vocation seriously, but not grimly. With her keen insight in the problems and emotions that go with homemaking and her sympathetic sense of humor, she has succeeded in drawing from even the most humdrum aspects of home life the age-old truths of human nature an in proving that theology and philosophy are as necessary in the home as in the university.
Although mothers might take this as a "spiritual handbook," the style is by no means didactic. Woven into the chapters are such amusing incidents as the occasion on which Mrs. Hertz chose a cat for a spiritual director, and the time that her goat ate the family account book. Whether the tone be serious or humorous, Mrs. Hertz's "words of wisdom" will give the reader a deeper respect for the vocation of homemaking/motherhood.
