This is the perfect book for the season and I did copy a few of the recipes out of the book because they sounded really wonderful. I really enjoyed the way these women’s stories were told through the use of cookie recipes which starts off each chapter. This group of women will have you hungry for more of Pearlman’s story telling. I read this book when it first came out and love it. If you enjoyed the Friday Night Knitting Club, you will probably enjoy this one as well.
