Welch's new book is The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap: A Memoir of Friendship, Community, and the Uncommon Pleasure of a Good Book.
A couple of weeks ago I asked the author what she was reading. Welch's reply:
I just finished Jael McHenry's The Kitchen Daughter. I enjoyed the sense of character she created, the terse first-person narrator who sees the world a little differently. The stranger elements of the plot (the main character conjures ghosts with her cooking) just added charm to a very human story--of people trying to get over grief, trying to get on with life, trying to get past old hurts. A pleasant story, it had turns, twists and recipes aplenty. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with The Kitchen Daughter.Visit Wendy Welch's blog.
