The Undomestic Goddess
By Sophie Kinsella
Why this book?
The story follows corporate lawyer Samantha Sweeting, who has no personal life outside her career. One day, an epic mistake turns her life upside down, and due to various mix-ups she ends up masquerading as a housekeeper to a wealthy family in a British village. There is just one problem: she can’t cook, or clean, or iron, or do anything that is expected of a housekeeper.
I love this book because it has a bit of everything: romance, plenty of humor, drama, even a bit of mystery, all wrapped up in a playful yet insightful journey on life and self-discovery. I couldn’t help but admire Samantha’s skill to get herself out of uncomfortable situations, and find reserves of resilience she didn’t know she had.
