A poignant and transporting cross cultural love story set against the lush backdrop of the Sicilian countryside where one woman discovers the healing powers of food family and unexpected grace in her darkest hourIt was love at first sight when Tembi met professional chef Saro on a street in Florence There was just one problem Saro’s traditional Sicilian family did not approve of him marrying a black American woman an actress no less However the couple heartbroken but undeterred forges on They build a happy life in Los Angeles with fulfilling careers deep friendships and the love of their lives a baby girl the Beautiful writing and narration by the author I visited Sicily in May 2019 and the author s descriptions brought it all flooding back Sicily has everything beautiful vistas gorgeous beaches amazing architecture delicious food wine wonderful characters As I listened I scribbled uotes on various scraps of paper such as junk mail envelopes I wrote on anything I had to hand when I heard something that twanged my heart strings However I appear to have mislaid most of them around my home So here is one of the uotes that so moved meit was clear that being with Saro had been like weaving a beautiful complicated tapestry After his death being with his family was like looking at the flip side of that tapestry the stitching showed the bulky knots the places where the fringe had frayed but it was still part of the same beautiful piece92619 Found another uote He was kryptonite sprinkled on a pizza my personal weakness

    My actual stars would be much lower but I feel it's unfair to judge a book just because it's a type of book I dislike It was beautifully written and full of description that makes you want to be there The issue is that I don't read books to make myself sad There is enough sadness in the world without choosing to immerse yourself in it Others love these books and I didn't want my taste to taint the rating of a beautiful book

    From Scratch a Memoir This was an assignment from Reese W and Hello Sunshine Good thing too because this is not one I would have picked up and read given my own choosing algorithms But this was an interesting story with all the happy accidents that result in real living as opposed to fictionally contrived situations to fit plot points full of crazy coincidences for which we make up plots intervening characters

    What a beautiful tribute to love in all its forms even the love you still feel when you are mourning That love is its own kind of love as true as powerful as life shaping as the kind you'd easily been able to express before everything changed I loved especially these lines on p 176 throughout life we revisit the empty spaces That

    Probably would have given this book 2 stars except that the writing really is beautiful It just wasn't what I expected This is a memoir about loss period If that's what you're here for then you will likely get a lot out of it but it wasn't what I was hoping for at this particular moment in my life

    I wanted to love this book Sicily food culture family love but unfortunately I did not The story was too drawn out too much forced drama There were parts that made me smile other parts I rolled my eyes I wish I loved it I just didn’t feel it
