Book Review: The Chocolate Diaries
Karen Scalf Linamen has hilariously pulled together stories from dozens of women who have tested and approved strategies for embracing a sweeter life--even while traveling rocky roads. This book is chock full of joy, reasons to laugh, ideas to help you heal and reliable hop leading to a sweeter future. It is also riddled with recipes to help you find ways to indulge in a little chocolate every day.
Ms. Linamen is the kind of writer that makes you feel like you've made a new friend. She expertly weaves in stories from her life that lend to the book's authenticity. Her advice is sound and her humor is refreshing. I may not know quite what to say to someone who is going through a rough time, but I could point them to this book. I think it could be a ray of sunshine on what else would be a dark, lonely path.
This book was sent to me by WaterBrook Press in exchange for an honest review, as a part of their Blogging for Books program.
