I loved the book "Stones for Bread" by Christa Parrish. This book really had all the makings of a great novel - not just in the Christian genre, but across the board. At first I thought it was going to be hard to get into because there is a lot of detail about bread making in this book. But it wasn't long before I was sucked in. The way Parrish writes really made me get lost in the book. Liesl McNamara, the main character of the book, is obsessed with bread. Her whole life revolves around bread. But you can see her evolving throughout the book. She takes in friends, new coworkers, perhaps a man, tries new things, and even finds her faith again through a long series of events. I just love the way this book was written, and it makes me want to check out Christa Parrish's other works. There are also eleven artisan bread recipes, which I enjoyed reading (and drooling over) and impressed me thoroughly. I highly recommend this book. If you don't usually enjoy the Christian genre (I know some in this genre are quite sappy and cheesy), I think you should try this one. I feel sure you'll like it as well.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity Group and Thomas Nelson for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
