Book Description

Megan didn't make the crisis. The crisis made her.

Megan Soulard has a loving husband who provides a beautiful home and a pleasant upscale lifestyle.

But when it all comes crashing down, with Dan in prison for a crime he didn’t really commit and her home in foreclosure, Megan finds a way to survive and thrive during challenging economic times. Jobs are scarce, and money is tight, but Megan’s ingenuity and good humor give her the strength to make a new life for herself and her husband.

Fast-paced and amusing, The Current Unpleasantness illustrates one woman's unorthodox-but-actually-brilliant plan, with sympathetic and engaging characters and a slightly skewed outlook.
