Jan, a farmer's daughter, is determined to reinvent herself. She meets Dick, a gentleman from London, England. It is an unlikely match from the beginning, but this book is about how they use their incompatibility to create an unconventional life together.
The author writes of the highs and lows of their journey while highlighting the ability we all have to persevere with grace and humour through embarassing or difficult situations.
Life with Dick is an entertaining look at Jan and Dick's almost 50 years together and the unintentional lessons they're given their unsuspecting children.
