Beth M. Howard ¿ 7 characters

Nergy between two great American icons; pie and the American Gothic House where she now lives and runs the Pitchfork Pie StandThis beautifully written memoir is shows how one courageous woman triumphs over tragedy and is ultimately about hope It's about the journey of healing and recovery of facing fears finding meaning in. I love pie LOVE pie I can also relate to baking through life s challengesThat being said I could not get into this book I could not relate to the author at all Opening the book with her complaints about her marriage did not appeal her to me I was sad that her husband died but her ways of dealing with the problems of her marriage asking for a divorce even though it was the last thing she wanted just to get his attention were immature I just couldn t connect with this woman Call me old fashioned but a marriage is about the couple not the individuals Seemed like they both got married for the wrong reasons

I m 113 pages in and don t think I ll be able to finish this one Too bad it had such promise But besides the author telling you about how much she loved her husband even though they were on the verge of divorce and then he died she s all about telling you how she used to work on a hit TV show How she didn t go to her prom because she d already lost her virginity and wanted to go on a camping trip instead How she used to bake pies for celebrities in Malibu All the bragging is very annoying and the bad pie metaphors sprinkled throughout made me feel she was trying too hard The writing is serviceable but nothing graceful or thought provoking Back to the library it goes
