His Lovely Wife is a complex, surprising novel that explores a culture that celebrates women for their beauty then exacts a terrible toll. They weren't necessarily happy or sad cries, but the touching and poignant stories she told about her parents, her family, meeting people on the campaign trail, etc. If you do not hand over the products when arranged, then we may also charge you our direct costs for each failed collection attempt.

The party chairman of the county stood up at the lectern and in a loud, booming voice, introduced “Congressman Sherrod Brown–and his lovely wife. I was lucky enough to meet Connie at a recent event, so naturally I bought her book and got it signed. A Variety article from January 5, 1955, includes the appellation in a collection of memorable media mishaps from 1954. It’s hard to see where God is and what God is doing when there’s trouble in our lives, or in our world. If this account was coming from anyone else but a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist I would say it was whitewashed.

I'm a big fan of Connie Schultz, who I feel I have gotten to "know" through her columns and her Facebook page. The anguished poet of Lamentations, recording his hope amidst grief, reminds us of God’s power to unexpectedly resurrect dead hope. And they knew this was God’s doing: “The Lord has done what he has purposed; he has carried out his word, which he commanded long ago” (Lamentations 2:17). Elizabeth Dewberry's complex, surprising novel uses string theory to weave together two women's lives and explore a culture that celebrates women for their beauty-then exacts a terrible toll.

I enjoyed Connie Schultz' account of her year+ campaigning with her husband, Sherrod Brown, for his senate seat, mostly in 2006. As she hears Diana's voice in her head and begins to understand the parallels between their lives, she tracks down the person who took the photograph, hoping that this man who deals in surfaces can penetrate her beauty, as he did Diana's, and help her love the woman inside.And my favorite part of Romans chapter 8 is that section that was read here this afternoon just a moment ago as our Scripture lesson, verses 31 through 39. She doesn't sugar coat the issues they encountered and that includes her own problems: leaving the Plain Dealer, learning to be a "politician's wife" while being an ardent feminist and having her own career, etc. We can barely fathom such multilayered darkness and suffering: afflicted by God, decimated by man, alone, with no light, no peace, no happiness, no hope.

George, the more energetic and charismatic brother, center of attention at parties and certainly better-known, was sharply juxtaposed with the quieter, more scholarly nature of Ira. Born in Ashtabula into a blue collar family, Connie, in addition to her other loves and duties, teaches at Kent State University. Since she has always been known as a very independent and outspoken woman, readers will get exactly what they expect. And that same anticipation is something we should experience when we think of finally seeing our Savior face to face.To truly appreciate this beautiful, beloved declaration, we need to keep in mind the kinds of shock this author and his people had experienced. Those who know nothing about Connie Schultz and Sherrod Brown will find this book an amusing journey through a Congressional campaign. We will bare the costs if we are at fault; "Fault" means we have sent you an incorrect item, the item you received is faulty or it does not match the description (and we have not informed you of the differences in the product design or description). Schultz wrote for The Plain Dealer and her accomplishments include several articles advocating for women’s health care including this one on the Stupak Amendment back in ‘09.

As a woman, of course I loved Connie's take on having to make compromises in her own career for her husband's election. She gives us a candid behind-the-scenes look at the often ludicrous trials and tribulations of being an opinionated columnist, a political wife, and a newly married woman in her forties, and the rigors of political audacious bloggers, ruthless adversaries, campaign fatigue, political divas, the no-small-planes agreement, and staffers young enough to be her children suddenly directing her and her husband’s every move. If he did, we hope it gave him a good chuckle and brought back fond memories of his days working with George. A humorous piece from a February 27, 1965 Chicago Tribune article dropped mention of “his lovely wife, Ira” in a manner that suggests that most readers were still in on the joke ten years later. They had seen infants die of starvation in the arms of their mothers (Lamentations 2:11–12), parents eat the remains of their children (Lamentations 4:10), young women brutally raped, and once-free men enslaved and humiliated (Lamentations 5:11–13).Unfortunately for the DJ, this embarrassing goof did not go unnoticed, and the infamous line became lodged in America’s collective memory. She tells tales from the campaign trail including young staffers dictating her schedule and being introduced at a function as “Sherrod Brown…and his lovely wife” – no name included. Not being from Ohio, I knew very little about Connie Schultz when I attended a reading of this book at the Oberlin Public Library soon after it was published.
