In the manner of Kristin Hannah, Kate Jacobs or Debbie Macomber, Friendship Bread is a story of healing, forgiveness, reconciliation and new friendships. Meet the people of Avalon, all touched by friendship bread after a homemade loaf of Amish Friendship Bread, a bag of starter, the recipe and a request to "share with others" anonymously appear on Julia Evarts doorstep five years after the death of her ten-year-old son.
This is a delightful story about relationships, loss and healing, and small town life. A second novel set in Avalon will be released in 2012.
