I have been talking about this book since I read it in manuscript form last year. It has never left me. This is the true story – told through the eyes of a father – about the sudden loss of his 38 year old daughter and how he and his wife step in to help their son-in-law care for their 3 young grandchildren.
This is not a maudlin tale. Yes, it’s sad. But it’s also inspiring, hopeful and even humorous at times. If you want to meet a family who will stay with you long after you’ve read the last page of their story, read Making Toast. For more coverage on the book, including a fantastic interview with Roger Rosenblatt, check out yesterday's dedicated issue of Shelf Awareness.
I’ll send a copy to you if you send a review to me at librarylovefest atharpercollins dot com. Really, I’d love to hear what you think.
