'As comforting, warm and delicious as a slice of freshly-baked friendship bread.' - Jane Green, New York Times bestselling author of Promises to Keep 'Deliciously entertaining! You'll cheer all the way as these characters stumble toward forgiveness, understanding, and, ultimately, celebration ...a treat worth sharing with all the women in your life.' - Kate Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club Julia Evarts is still mourning her young son, Josh, when she returns home to find an anonymous culinary chain letter sitting on her porch: a plate of Amish Friendship Bread along with a bag filled with the gooey starter, topped with a simple note, 'I hope you enjoy it'. She is instructed to feed the starter over a ten-day period then bake two loaves of bread and share the remaining starter with three other people. As the friendship bread makes its way through the quirky town of Avalon, including into the home of Julia's estranged sister, Livvy, whom Julia has long blamed for Josh's death, three women - each with her own secrets and regrets - find themselves drawn together and their lives inexplicably changed.
Friendship Bread is a touching celebration of life, loss, friendship and the power of belonging.
