I loved this book! I've been waiting anxiously to read it ever since I read it was coming out, and was so excited when I found a copy in my mailbox. It was so heartwarming with interesting characters, all totally different with needs and problems unique to them.
Heidi Troyer is a young Amish woman who is unable to have children, and decides to offer a cooking class to help pass the time and make a little extra money. She has four students to sign up, and an unexpected student at the last minute.
A young, pregnant, unmarried girl, an Amish neighbor who lost his wife a year ago, an engaged woman needing to learn how to cook, a young widowed mother with two young children, and an older man who is temporarily parking his old RV in the Troyer's yard. They each bring unique personalities and issues into the mix. I stayed fully engaged as they each gradually shared their problems and life experiences with the group. It was interesting to see them grow and evolve as they worked toward resolving their issues and leaning on scripture that Heidi wrote on the recipe cards she gave each student after each class. A bonus was the actual recipes in the back of the book that was taught in each session. I certainly think I'll give at least three recipes a try, maybe all.
I received this book from Barbour Publishing and was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise.
