Viola Shipman's novels take me back to a place where I can feel the past generations of the women in my family looking down on me and reminding me of all the wonderful family traditions we have had, whether it be the meaning behind family jewelry (The Charm Bracelet), the memories behind our family heirlooms (The Hope Chest) or the stories behind our family's favorite dishes (The Recipe Box). As always, I enjoyed this book journey and look forward to the next Viola Shipman novel.
Book club members, take note. The Recipe Box would make a fun book club selection that could be enhanced by making and sharing the recipes included in the book, and maybe making one of your family favorites too.
I received this book courtesy of St. Martin's Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
