Descrizione prodotto

L'autore


Aleesa Sutton has an A.R.C.T. from the Royal Conservatory of Music and a B.A. in Music from Brigham Young University. These have opened up countless opportunities such as legal secretary, double-decker tour bus guide and ice cream scooper. Once, she also played the piano at a crazy Mexican couple's dinner party, where they tied a bib around her neck and spoon-fed her soup.

She starved artfully for a few years in Toronto before becoming a Cambridge-certified ESL teacher and teaching abroad. When her backpacking trip across Europe surprisingly did not produce the husband she’d always dreamed of, she came home and decided to write a book about it all.

Aleesa lives in Vancouver, BC, where she continues to teach English and dreams of sharing the fridge with someone, someday.

5.0 su 5 stelle Be prepared: Difficult to put down once you start! 29 novembre 2012
Di avidreader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Readers across different cultures, backgrounds and religion will thoroughly enjoy exploring the unique challenges that not all of us face or grasp - dating in a religiously accepted mormon way. How does it differ from other religions? There are several rules of mormon dating that this book explores, while introducing the reader to some basic understanding of the mormon religion.

After reading through the first few pages, it became evident that I was going to have a hard time putting the book down. With enormous humour, witty charm and pause for self-reflection, the author courageously shares deeply personal experiences and excerpts from her diary, which revolve around dating and friendships and how her discovery of both eventually lead back to her religious beliefs. Females will relate and be delighted in finding relief, sadness and sheer laughter as they realize that the dating scenarios from the author's preserved teenage to adulthood perspective, is right on the money! Males: PAY ATTENTION! This book reminded me of the Mel Gibson movie "What Woman Want" minus the part about boys being able to hear and know what the girl is thinking. Boys: if you want to know what women think, a good start would be to pick up this book and see for yourselves.

Now, if her silent knight in shining armour would hurry up already!

5.0 su 5 stelle A poignant memoir of a pilgrim soul 13 gennaio 2013
Di Stephen Clarke - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This was a great read. Needless to say, not everyone's journals bear sustained reading, but I had a hard time putting this one down. Diary of a Single Mormon Female is a deeply affecting, heartfelt memoir told with wry humor, good grace, and remarkable candor. The author describes her book as the record of her "mostly ill-fated" attempts to achieve the "fairy-tale goal" of finding a boy, falling in love, and living happily ever after. But this isn't a story of failure. Rather, it is a story of courage, faith, and endurance, and offers a poignant reminder of the soul-making uses of adversity. The author is a gifted storyteller and very, very funny. But I particularly appreciated her willingness to discuss her struggles with religious doubt--a courageous act for a faithful Latter-day Saint. I hope this book finds a wide readership (particularly among single LDS men!).

5.0 su 5 stelle Great summer reading from an author with a ton of personality 1 giugno 2013
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Sutton has written a personal, very poignant story, woven from diary entries and commentary, of her journey through adolescence and early adulthood as an unmarried Mormon female. It's many things, not least an engaging and funny read, but it is also interesting from an anthropological perspective, as it is a very detailed and open story about what it means to be female and Mormon.
Sutton's "authorial" commentary on the diary entries is definitely my favourite writing; her dry wit is a great counterpoint to the confessional tone of the diary entries. As she matures from naive teen to worldly, questioning and discerning adult, the diary entries shift accordingly in tone and become more introspective, and themselves deal with some of the issues at the heart of Sutton's situation.
I certainly learned a great deal about Mormonism and the social pressures that are placed on female Mormons; the appendix offers some ideas from Sutton as to how the LDS community might be more supportive to those female members who remain unmarried, and it's here where I think the book goes beyond its own ends to something bigger and very important.
It's great beach/pool/travel reading -- fun, easy to read, but not light in subject matter, relatively quick. I couldn't stop once I started. Pick it up!

It's nice to see single Mormon women putting their stories out there. I also grew up strong in the faith, went to BYU (at the exact same time as the author), and moved forward to build a life for myself alone. Feeling like a freak of nature among fellow Mormons more than anyone for keeping the tenets of our religion without benefit of marriage, I seek out these stories out mostly as a way to feel less alone. It did that: I'm not the only one traumatized by SA events and disillusioned by Mormon men! Still, I felt rather like an unwelcome intruder reading the detailed personal stories of the relationships and the pseudorelationships. I wonder: is the pervasive over-revelation of books and TV actually a contributor to the insufferable nosiness singles are subjected to? Far more than the tales of men, Aleesa's examination of her faith, her relationship with the church and with God was of great interest to me. I think all Mormon singles reach a point of wondering if there is a place for us in the gospel, especially if we're trying to live it. Many (most?) disappear at this point. It is helpful to see how the author has dealt with the realities of her experience in a theology that makes room for all disciples, but among imperfect people who sometimes don't. And has chosen to move forward with faith.

4.0 su 5 stelle Couldn't put it down... 28 gennaio 2013
Di Amy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I read this book on the recommendation of a couple of friends...I'm not like Aleesa - I haven't always been the stalwart member, so missed out on many years of conferences, dances, roommates, hot chocolate, guys named Wallace, infatuations with guys I'd realize later I really didn't want to spend eternity with, but in the end we are in the same place: single mormon females, in our 30's. I can still relate & although it would have been nice if she'd summarized a bit more from 12-18, it's where the fairy-tale began. As Latter-Day Saint Young Women we were taught that we'd graduate from high school, work, maybe go to college for the M.R.S degree & get married & have babies all before we were 25. When that didn't happen for me I was out of there, but Aleesa kept at it describing her adventures & misadventures alike...you'll laugh for sure, maybe you'll cry with her & if you're "one of us" you'll relate. If the diary-style is a little much, hang in there, as she gets older so does her writing style - that's to be expected. And she leaves some advice at the end, something I needed to be reminded of from someone who actually relates. Well done, Aleesa.
