Book Review - Cherries in Winter

I received a free copy of the book Cherries in Winter from Random House to read and review. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I didn't know anything about it and it sounded o.k., but not really good. I read it anyway (I like to read). I was pleasantly surprised. It took me just a little while to get into the book, but I really felt drawn in by Suzan Colon.

The book had recipes intermingled in the story, which I think is an interesting concept, (and they were pertinent to the story - which I absolutely loved). I haven't had the chance to try any of them yet, but I plan to (some of them sounded delicious).

The book is not a fictional book, it is about Suzan and her family and how they survived the recession, depression, and any economical struggles that the nation and their family faced. It was not depressing, but encouraging. If you are looking for a book that offers hope in hard times, this is a book for you.

Hi Jena,
Thank you so much for your lovely review of my book! It was so sweet of you to take the time to read it, especially since you sound super-busy. Four boys! Bless your heart... :)
I'm glad you enjoyed the book despite your initial hesitation. I have that happen too, and I'm really glad you were pleasantly surprised.
Many, many thanks for giving my family's story some space on your family's great website!
All the best,
Suzan Colón
