A book worth savoring,

This review is from: Life from Scratch (Paperback)
I'm not nearly as good a writer as Ms. Ford is, but suffice it to say, this is the best book I've read in ages. While it could be easily lumped into the "Chick-Lit" category, that doesn't do "Life From Scratch" justice. A story about a divorced woman on her quest to find herself speaks right to the heart of how we relate to one another, and the assumptions we make in our minds that cloud reality. So many lighter female-oriented stories dumb down their writing, but this story manages to plate a full and delicious meal without resorting to gimmicks or bland storytelling. I couldn't put the book down and would recommend it to anyone looking for a soulful yet fun read.
