I purchased this from an independent bookseller in Newport RI. I promptly went back to the boat and devoured this. I then passed it on to a friend who I’m sure will only think it ‘meh’. But I could be wrong. We never like the same books…
I would rate it 3.5 stars but am boosting or rounding up to 4 because there are some awesome pie mentions!
What’s it ABOUT: A Jewish woman, Addie Baum, reminisces her childhood and life beyond in a retelling to her granddaughter. It has sad and scary moments and a few laughs; overall she has found Love and has lived a wonderful life.
I’m not really sure it has much plot. (Which is why I think my friend won’t like it.)
It is warm and uplifting and reminds me to cherish my friendships.
