Editorial Reviews

"Jane exudes an innocence in her presentation of life that made me want to meet her and see the world through her eyes. She had me laughing and commiserating, shocked and envious, all at once. Definitely a fun read, and I would recommend this book to all, without any hesitation."-Readers' Favorite, 5 stars"Jane Schmidt documents the essential day-to-day of rural Wisconsin life with a deft balance of sentiment, reportage, and humor. City mouse, country mouse, newcomer or old-timer, you will find yourself nodding, grinning, and sometimes dabbing at your eyes as you read these stories."-Michael Perry, best-selling author of Truck: A Love Story and The Jesus Cow"Jane Schmidt is funny, candid, and has the keen eye of an outsider looking in?then turning the mirror back on herself. Reading the final pages felt like the last miles of a road trip with someone whose company you really enjoyed that has ended far too soon."-Julie Buckles, author of Paddling to Winter"With humor, grace, and tenderness, Jane Schmidt gives her readers an entertaining peek into the layered life of a single mother, animal hoarder, and kick-ass fitness instructor?living a rustic life but still searching for the perfect wand of mascara and a respectable pair of jeans."-Sheila Sherwin, writer and editor of RealSmallTowns.com"In daring to share herself fully with the reader through these funny and heart-felt stories of country life, Jane Schmidt helps us laugh out loud into that sometimes heart-breaking gap between our dreams and realities, and between what we hope is true about ourselves and what actually is. Whether you live out in the country or in the big city, Not a Perfect Fit is a gift of laughter, vulnerability, and wisdom."-Jennifer Morales, award-winning author of Meet Me Halfway
