The Book of Jane by Ann Dayton and May Vanderbilt (2007)
This contemporary chick lit retelling of the Biblical Book of Job has Jane Williams (who lives what her friends consider a perfect life), losing her high-profile job, boyfriend, and awesome NYC apartment all in the space of a day or so–not to mention her seriously sick dog and that mysterious facial rash. Sweet, romantic, funny and inspirational (but isn’t it annoying when characters don’t take some obvious action that could help resolve a problem?).
