Here’s my first beach bag book. It was on my kindle list for a while and though I kept falling asleep when I tried to read at night, it wasn’t at all because of the book! I actually finished two thirds of it in one reading late at night over the weekend. I think it’s a great choice for a summer afternoon read or even on a long plane trip. Sarah Kate Lynch gives us an engaging and admittedly teary story of Esme, her loving husband Pog, and their unfathomable loss. There are some nice supporting characters, and some not so nice ones. But it explains, as I have long exercised, that baking of any kind is therapeutic. The book also includes a recipe for sourdough and sourdough starter. An item, oft included in recipes, but never explained.
