Book Review: Comfort Food

Comfort Food by Jake Jacobs

Description: Gus Simpson raised her children on her own and began to star in a very popular cooking show. Now that her children are raised she doesnt' have to concentrate on them, but instead on herself. But her cooking show which has defined her for years seems to be on the rocks.

The only thing that can bring back her popularity is a new idea. And she comes up with the perfect one. A family cooking show. She brings her daughters, her daughter's ex boyfriend, and friends to her show and includes them. It is a smash hit. But being together in this manner means that things get brought out that maybe none of them wanted. Can they deal with it as a family?

Thoughts: For me this book is all about family. Family isn't just who you are biologically related to but whoever you love and include in your life. The fact that they all need to lean on each other to get what they need out of life is really important. This book covers it all death, life, marriage, old-age, success, - everything someone wants out of life. It is here in its own special way!

What genre would you consider this?
Family Dynamics
