KIRKUS REVIEW

More of that doll Barbie, and her husband Mark the minister of St. Michael's, and their youngsters, and all the daily bread without too much butter since Barbie now is questioning whether something is missing--in her marriage or outside. Thus she tries working one day a week ""to seek fulfillment"" in New York with a music publisher, eventually returns knowing that writing her own music is more important and that ""marriage is the sunshine and the rain of life."" She's found friends--viz. her A Hat on the Hall Table which this, subtitled ""A Story,"" resembles more closely than her To God with Love. But if you want real soulfood, bring your own box lunch.
