    A little over halfway through I just want to SHAKE Beth Howard I was hoping this wouldn't turn out to be another memoir by a spoiled middle aged lady but that's exactly what it is Usually food memoirs are written by people who are a little grounded and humble because people who work with food don't typically make a lot of money they work with their hands and their building blocks are very basic For Howard though bakin

    This writer is a very articulate over analytical self indulgent widow examining the sudden loss of her husband from whom she was soon to be divorced Her use of figurative language is amazing and at times very artistic but page after page of her detailed weeping and wailing grew tiresome I mean all right already I got it in the first 100 or so pages that her eyes suffered from swelling due to the abundant tears and she would collapse on the

    When our library’s Debbie Henderson recommends a book I read it We were both intrigued as history buffs and bakers to learn that Ms Howard lives in a historic house in Iowa portrayed in that famous painting called American Gothic by Grant Wood It is in this house a tourist attraction that she bakes pies for her Pitchfork Pie stand writes he

Making Piece

Nergy between two great American icons; pie and the American Gothic House where she now lives and runs the Pitchfork Pie StandThis beautifully written memoir is shows how one courageous woman triumphs over tragedy and is ultimately about hope It's about the journey of healing and recovery of facing fears finding meaning in. This writer is a very articulate over analytical self indulgent widow examining the sudden loss of her husband from whom she was soon to be divorced Her use of figurative language is amazing and at times very artistic but page after page of her detailed weeping and wailing grew tiresome I mean all right already I got it in the first 100 or so pages that her eyes suffered from swelling due to the abundant tears and she would collapse on the floor or onto a sofa in the fetal position but this went on from beginning to end even when she shopped at an Aldi store in her home state of Iowa for heaven sakes Sorrow is great and real but did we have to go over and over all the crying events The thesis that the world needs pie is trite rediculous and unconvincing At times however she had a wonderful grasp of humor and hyperbole and that was fun The fact that her journey through life in her 50 years or so has taken her all over this country and Europe as she moved around and it convinces me that this return to her home state of Iowa to reside in the famous American Gothic house of the Grant Wood painting will only result in another impulsive move somewhere else where she will indulge her descriptions of grief I mean did we have to have the details of her two night stand during her widowhood when she was attending a pie baking contest where she was supposed to be a judge What was the purpose of that OK Beth you ve said enough your husband died suddenly but this was not the first time the two of you were planning to divorce you baked pies all your life now see what else you can write about but remember the best writing is performed with restraint and less sentimentality

Life and moving forward with purpose and joy It's about the nourishment of the heart and soul that comes from the simple act of giving to others like baking a homemade pie and sharing it with someone whose pain is even greater than your own And it tells of the role of fate second chances and the strength found in communit. people will pick up this book and gain strength from Beth s survival after the loss of her husband Other s will pick up this book and identify with the healing power of food I picked up this book that I didn t even know was set partially in Iowa and got a piece of home when I needed it the most I haven t been home since Thanksgiving and my homesickness has reached an all new level To paraphrase the author talks about crossing the Missouri river into Council Bluffs and seeing the sign that says Iowa A Place to Grow and how it just felt right I know that feeling so very well I have had that same feeling every trip home for the last two plus yearsI really enjoyed Making Piece I am sure that I enjoyed it because of the Iowa connection than I did anything elsenot really a pie girl unless it is made of chocoolate but I enjoyed watching Beth make it through that critical year She went from being the big city girl back to that small town Iowa girl with such ease that it almost makes me long to do the same I think that Making Piece has a little something for everyone including recipes at the back of the book
