From the Kitchen of Half Truth by Maria Goodin
I absolutely loved every page of this enchanting story!
A mother, Valerie, tells her daughter, Meg, a lot of very awesome stories about Meg's life and therefore Meg has to go through quite a bit in order to find out the truth about her life.
Meg's mother is dying of cancer and when Meg goes home to stay with her mother during her last days, Meg learns a lot about herself and her mother.
Maria tells this story in a way that made me very happy. All of the stories that the mother tells her daughter are quite enchanting, and they left me feeling warm inside.
At the end of this story, the reader learns about all of the people whom Valerie has touched through her generosity, the life of Meg, and the life of Valerie. And all of this made for a story that is good for the soul.
I got the feeling that after the death of Valerie, Meg was going to be all right.
What a great read for 'such a time as this.'
I hope that you are enjoying this season as much as I am.....
