Life from Scratch

Life From ScratchLife From Scratch by Melissa Ford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story of a woman who is divorced & trying to find herself.

In doing that - she starts a blog & does sort of a "Julie/Julia" thing - learns to cook. While she blogs about her cooking, its her life that she also shares that makes her blog popular.

With a great friend & family who cares about her, she journeys on in this new life. She ends up meeting a Spanish fellow who she starts seeing what a single life is about. But she's still not happy.

Everything comes to a head on her 35th birthday... where is her life going? Is she ever going to be happy? Why did her marriage really end?

The end of the book sorta surprised me (I like when books do that) & we find out that Rachel has learned a lot about who she is & what she wants out of life.

(For the record, being a blogger, I so appreciated Rachel's blog posts before each chapter)
