Friendship Bread by Darien Gee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If this book had a scent it would probably be cinnamon! A bag of starter and a loaf of bread seem like a very innocent gift, but it seems to have a great gift attached to it. You will be wishing you lived in Avalon!
The character's in this book seem so unlikely to be friends, but that judgement would be wrong! Julia has lost her beloved son, Hannah's husband is putting her aside, and Madeline has lost her husband and her stepson. There is a lot of forgiveness and sharing that goes on.
There is a lure in these bags of starter, life changing things begin to happen to the people of Avalon. Once you start this read you will not want to put it down.
Now I need to get making a starter for myself and begin baking! There are recipes to be found at http://www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com/re... Can you imagine making brownies, sour dough bread, and all the amazing bread variances.
