Singled Out: Book Review

Living Single

In a world where pairing off is the norm and marriage makes a happily-ever-after, how can single women be happy?

Nikki Derouin answers this question in her new book, Singled Out. Derouin’s dream of becoming a wife and mother didn’t come to fruition. Now, she isn’t on a mission to help ladies find their soul mates or achieve fulfillment through a career, but through appreciating the importance of Christian service. Singled Out is brief – including an appendix, it’s 101 pages – with questions provided at the end of each chapter.

Who is Singled Out is written for?

Derouin discusses her experiences teaching girls that are probably in high school. Singled Out, and at times, seems to be geared toward those who have just crossed into adulthood. However, there are other spots that an older audience can better appreciate, such as the discussion that singleness might be permanent. Overall, Singled Out will best be appreciated by ladies at least 21 years old who hold traditional views of gender roles.
