Editorial Reviews

Review

"One unique, crazy-quilt, truly American tale of reinvention." - Publishers Weekly

An unabashedly honest look at young widowhood and how good friends and pie-baking can go a long way toward healing a broken heart. - The Oregonian

Named one of the Best Books of 2012 by San Francisco Book Review

Beth Howard describes with warmth and wit how the bittersweet events in life are offset by the sweet ones--much like the ingredients of a good recipe. Making Piece is a moving account of love and loss. - Jeanette Walls, New York Times bestselling author of The Glass Castle
