The Marketing of Sister B

Paperback / 160 pages / 1-56085-163-5 / $14.95
All Donna Brooks wanted was to make something special for Relief Society. Little did she know when she reached for her wooden spoon and plugged in her crock pot that morning, she would throw herself and her family into an emotional pressure cooker and become an instant, national celebrity.
This outrageously funny tale follows an LDS mother through an overnight start-up success and through the labyrinth of that most mysterious of institutions, the ward Relief Society. Wafting through this affectionate frolic are some serious questions. Who defines us? What constitutes our identity? What is authentic and what is, well, marketing?
Homemaking never went this far!
