About the Author

“Whether in Europe or the states I always looked forward to lying awake & listening to my cousin Jean tell stories.” —Julie Sorbet, Nevada (Authors note: The only cousin I ever made cry…I still feel guilty about that. Go Donny Osmond!) “My sister Jean is witty, loving, smart, practical, creative, quirky and a really good cook. The ‘Cookie Queen’.”—Mary Sorbet, Georgia (Authors note: She is living with my husband and I now, so take this with a grain of salt, two sticks of butter, a cup of sugar, a cup of flour and two eggs, lightly beaten!) “A book written by my aunt who quit Belgium for USA after I was born, I hope there is no link”—Vincent Vanpee, Belgium (Authors note: Those rosy, cherubic cheeks were a definite sign of trouble to come…) “DO NOT SELL THIS BOOK ILLEGALLY”—Mark Funk, Virginia (Authors note: He is rather obviously vying for the role of enforcer just in case I ever need one. I hope he doesn’t think it would be a paying gig…) “A book bringing back fun memories of early childhood when family visited.”—Dale DeMarcy Touchet, Louisiana (Authors note: Dale must be one of the few cousins I didn’t irritate by talking to invisible friends and trying to hog all the crawfish) “Written by a dear friend who really knows how to brighten your day. This is a must.”—Susan Rannestad Frantzen, Norway (Authors note: She loves me because she sees me once every 30 years and lives far, far away! Evidently I am pretty cool in small doses.) “10 years ago, was mistaken for her 32 year old niece, by her niece’s husband.”—David Etter, Michigan (Author’s note: David is my new best friend!) “My Aunt Jean is wise, comical, tough as nails, the first to laugh at herself and the last to laugh at someone else. An indomitable spirit to be sure!”—Teri Smith Kupchunos, Georgia (Authors note: Paid for (with cookies and chicken wings) by the committee to promote this book!) Jean Sorbet Scott lives with her husband and best friend, John, just west of Atlanta, Georgia. Their road stretches forever ahead, begging to be traveled.

Format: Paperback
If you are very lucky, you have that special friend you've known forever, the one who, though perhaps you don't see each other often, when you do, you pick up where you left off, and end up talking with until four in the morning. You know the friend, she's the one that makes you feel better about yourself, the one you can't believe you're lucky enough to know, the one that just the thought of warms your heart. This book is very much like sharing a cup of coffee with that dear friend, and the essays in this book read as if they were penned by the love child of Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck. I found myself reading it very slowly, as I truly didn't want it to end.

The topics covered run the gamut from the everyday such as children, neighbors, family, and jobs, to the more contemplative and personal of religion, depression, and poverty. But the astonishing feat Ms. Scott manages with these essays is to never sound preachy or combative. This is just a down-to-earth, smart, funny woman sharing her life with those of us fortunate enough to know her. And of course, with those of you lucky enough to get to know her through this book.

My one and only complaint with the book is not with the author, but with Amazon, for the deal they allow for untested authors doesn't provide an editor. That being said, you will find yourself willingly ignoring the typos because you will be rooting for the author - you will want her to win. Ms. Scott can teach us all something about the resilience of the human spirit. She has clearly kept her sense of humor through all of the tragedy and sorrow that have been thrown at her. Many years ago, in a conversation with this lovely woman, I told her that there was no way I could have endured everything she had.

Found it to be a candid look at life from a viewpoint different from my own. A very nice reminder that we do not know anthers view on the world until we hear their story. A very good read.

A beautiful story. A lively story. A journey of self-discovery and reawakening! A very good read from a lovely perspective. And a sense of humor that you just won't believe until you have experienced it first hand. Pick up a copy. You'll be glad you did!

Not much in these stories stands out. Some are cute. More like a readers digest type of author. Got it as a gift. Not something I would buy.
