Whether you're buying a stranger a cup of hot chocolate, sharing a tube of toothpaste or giving someone a starter bag of Friendship bread... sometimes all it takes to make a difference in your world is a simple act of kindness!
I recently received a copy of Friendship Bread: A Novelby Darian Gee. This book introduces you to a random mix of unrelated residents who live in the city of Avalon. Friendship Bread is the story of betrayal, loss, depression, anger, forgiveness, love, loyalty, and renewal of dreams. Life is hard and doesn't always make sense, but these strangers become friends and find that sometimes the smallest gestures lead to the strongest bonds.
The first few chapters introduce you to the characters. Then the author Darien Gee begins to weave it all together. This is a compelling story - one that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all the way to the end.
I have never made a loaf of Friendship Bread - and don't know anyone in my neighborhood that does. Looks like I'll have to make my own starter batch and begin the chain here in my side of the world!
Read the first chapter here....
