    Joan Nelson’s ex husband James drops a bombshell He needs her to sell their house because his girlfriend is pregnant This is the final blow to Joan who wanted a child from her marriage to James but it never happened Reeling from the divorce she learns to cope with doing things for herself She has no college degree has a low level job in a law firm and struggles to exist She’s lost in her own world of hopelessness but her friend Delores who works in the cafeteria of the building where the firm has its offices is than willing to draw Joan into the dating game They visit art shows outdoor concerts and even try a night out dancing Joan has an overwhelming crush on one of the lawyers Scott who rents space at the office She wants to appear attractive but cookies and ice cream have been her friends since the divorce One evening during one of her downward spirals Joan watches a movie about Joan of Arc and then and there Joan Nelson decides she can conuer anything An old friend from high school Kevin shows up at her door Kevin is a realtor She is always thrilled to see Kevin but her fondness for him waivers when she learns James has sent him to sell the house Kevin is James’ friend but he’s Joan’s friend too She lets Kevin help her list house and when he shows her an apartment for rent in his building they become neighbors Joan relies on Kevin for everything from exercise classes to overflowing water heaters She keeps telling herself he’s a friend and she even asks Kevin how she could win over the lawyer she’s lusting over Kevin is patient and kind most of the time but everyone can see he’s in love with her everyone but Joan Then disaster strikes at the office Someone is getting into the company files after hours All fingers point to Joan as she is the newest employee Her arch rival both at the office and in the jousting of approval from Scott Kimberlee seems to be doing her best to implicate Joan With Kevin’s never ending support Joan has lost weight and even tried out for the company skit She secured the leading role only to hear rude comments from Scott and Kimberlee during practice Kimberlee warns Joan she doesn’t know what she’s getting into with Scott Even through tight security the files continue to disappear and Joan asks Davis a computer geek who she and Delores met while out dancing for assistance With approval from one of the partners in the firm Mr Horowitz Kevin Joan Delores and Davis set up a sting operation to catch the culprit Will Joan catch the criminal and discover she can stand on her own two feet? Will she understand her experiences with men started long ago when a piece to a childhood puzzle is revealed? Does Joan realize love is waiting where she least expects it? Ms McCune gives us a soul searching glance into the lives of many women who have stuck out on love and think they’re mired in unproductive circumstances Ms McCune brings redemption to Joan Nelson’s circumstances and while the reader fears Joan will never see all the attributes of her long time friend Kevin love wins out in the end Well done Bonnie

    Originally posted at with humor and replete with growing pains of a divorced woman A Saint Comes Stumbling In takes the reader on a vicarious journey with Joan Nelson She goes from a stay home wife with limited marketable skills whose self image is in the cellar to being a capable confident much loved lady The zigs and zags stumbles falls and scrambling back up to try again make the reader keep turning pages just to see what will happen nextJoan’s almost manic depressive personality has her operating at “sky high or dirt low” most of the time Her stages of grief her self deprecation and her self improvement projects keep her emotions on a roller coaster ride In her self centered world she seems blind to both her mother and her longtime friend Kevin’s unfailing supportDolores her ever optimistic friend coaxes Joan out into the “hunt for a man” world where Joan is exposed to segments of society alien to her way of life The descriptions of these encounters tickle the funny boneJoan’s obsession with Scott Clark the young handsome lawyer sets her on a self improvement phase that her friend Kevin organizes for her and helps her to stay on target As they interact the reader soon realizes Kevin has one agenda and Joan has another—fun to see how things evolveA few of the episodes in A Saint Comes Stumbling In are a little too far out yet ridiculously funny Overall the story is a rite of passage story about a “late bloomer” who is slow to recognize her own worth and see the true love that’s been waiting in the wings for her to matureBonnie McCune entertains with a special charm She writes in first person that fits the self centeredness of Joan at this stage in her life The multitude of funny events disasters and the metamorphosis of Joan make the reader’s journey with her delightful It's like riding on waves of both subtle and blatant humor with an undertow of the devastation divorce can bring to a woman Good Reading
