Who Me? The Autobiography of Betty MacDonald
Her first husband wanted a ranch. He found one out in the middle of nowhere! He built the barn before the house and expected his new bride to raise baby chicks in the kitchen. (For more details, read "The Egg and I.")
When the whole ranch experience got to be too much, MacDonald took her two girls and moved back home, where she worked at a variety of jobs, which her sister Mary found, proving the older sister's philosophy that "Anybody Can Do Anything," at least if their name is Betty MacDonald.
And it was one of the office jobs, which caused the worst trouble--tuberculosis--and a stay in a sanatorium. (Those nine months are chronicled in "The Plague and I.")
Eventually, Betty meets another man, falls in love, and moves (with her two girls) to an island. (For more details, read "Onions in the Stew.")
Heartwarming and funny.
