Genre: Adult Fiction | Formats: Paperback, eBook
Pages: 208 | Publisher: Bell Bridge Books | Premise: On the heels of her divorce, Rachel decides to take a year off work and start over.
2¢ Worth: Pull out your Haagen-Dazs and cheap strawberry wine, because reading Life from Scratch feels like a post-breakup bonding night with your BFF. Rachel will suck you right in with her honest voice. Before you know it, you will be staying up well into the night as she gives you the scoop and you both consider where the heck she might go from here.
Word to the wise:
- Melissa Ford's writing is so smooth and authentic that I honestly thought it was semi-autobiographical. I even searched the net (several times) just to make sure Rachel's cooking blog/online diary wasn't real.
- Describing this book has been like trying to describe a friend.
- I have NEVER highlighted so many passages in a book before.
- As soon as I finished this one, I wanted to reread it. That hasn't happened to me since New Moon.
- Rumor has it the authoress is working on book two.
Whippersnappers: Divorce, sex, infertility, and the occasional curse word
Wholly: Life from Scratch is a funny, witty, 5 star, memoirish journey of how one gal (through cooking and blogging) finds her voice, passion, and insight on her failed marriage.
