A humorous narrative revealing the thoughts, advice, and fractured social life of a Roman Catholic Bridget Jones as she struggles to remain seraphic in light of her singleness.
Dorothy Cummings is the real thing: A serious young Catholic woman determined to remain true to her faith’s moral teachings no matter what. Convinced to turn her delightful blogs into a book, she gives voice to those like her who seek life-partners amid today’s dating jungle.
With sections such as: “No Sex in the City”; “The Caffeine in the Cappuccino of Life”; and “A Catholic’s Rules about Dating,” the book is witty and accessible. Set in the United States, Canada and Europe, it is an intelligent take on the contemporary dating scene for women of faith.
She writes with characteristic aplomb about the state of “single blessedness” and advocates that young women stop worrying and learn to love the single life. Wise, funny, insightful, and at turns poignant, Seraphic Singles is a must-read for young Catholic women negotiating the fine balance between dating and faith. And it holds delightful lessons for everyone else.
Dorothy Cummings holds an M. Div. and S.T.B. from Regis College at the University of Toronto. She is an award-winning columnist for The Catholic Register, Canada’s national Catholic newspaper, and lives in Scotland.
