From the Back Cover
This is no “women’s lib” book. Nor is it a five-step program for becoming a human doormat.
To Love, Honor, and Vacuum encourages women to deal with their hectic lives by prioritizing relationships and fostering responsibility and respect in all family members. When women apply these real-world, real-life insights, they will discover what it means to love and honor in spite of the vacuuming.
