It really bugged me how Eve treated her mother. Her mother might have been strict and stubborn, but that is no excuse for being so disrespectful at times and harp on her about the way she lives. You honor your parents. It wasn't as if Eve had been physically or verbally abused by her mother. She still deserved some respect. Yeah, she might be really opinionated and criticize, but most elderly peopke are like that. Most would just humor them and keep their opinions to themselves and it bugged me that eve knew her mother had Parkinson's disease and yet didn't do more to help-- like visit regularly. I was raised to respect my folks and my elders. We take care of our family members who aee sick or struggling-- no matter what. And it just really bothered me that someone who supposedly values family would be like that. I did like that mother and daughter were able to work through their issues and some together--it just bugged me that Eve couldn't overlook these issues earlier and do right for er aging parents... sorry to babble, this is something that really bothered me.
I loved this book! It was writen by three of my favorite amish authors. There are three different novella's in this book. You won't be dissapointed if like the writing of kelly long, amy clipston, or beth wiseman. The only thing i would have liked better is if they would have been full length novels. Novella's are sometimes too short and i'd rather read a novel. Anyway,,,good authors and good stories. I hope they all keep writing! No doubt a 5 star!!!
I loved the fun in this book. I also loved the recipes at the end of the book.
Beautiful words Powerful and real, A Recipe of Hope is all about the love of family and what happens when that love isn’t cared for properly. Between Eve and her mother, with their strained relationship and judgment of each other, to a brotherly bond stretched beyond its breaking point, Beth takes us on a journey of family, faith and hope. Truly wonderful and inspiring…it’ll make you want to call your mother to remind her how much she means to you.
Enjoyed these stories. A good read for short stories. Very well written. Will read more books by these authors. I also love the recipes in this book.
