Adorable old ladies adulting like adolescents. It‘s actually kind of adorable! Loved that the chapter headings tracked dollar amounts!

Book 4 completed for #24b4monday

I really enjoyed this one! It's so different than anything I might typically read but it was really refreshing. I now know more about beer than I ever expected I would. Satisfying.

This is the story of 3 very determined, yet different women from the same family. For awhile I had a hard time pegging where this book was going. However, as told in varying viewpoints, Stradal pays great attention to detail. By the time you‘re done you really feel like you get to know each of these flawed women and and their motivation, even if you don‘t always agree with it. You also leave wanting to know a lot more about and/or drink more beer.

If you want to know about ale, lagers, IPAs, and beer, (and trust me, you do), esp. in that humorous Fargo tone (sans the murders), this utterly delightful book is for you. Marvelous! Perfect for fall, football, and when you need a lift, such as because you just took the boy to meet his dreams in Spain, with tears and smiles.

This book was pretty special. Two sisters have a falling out after an inheritance and we follow them and one of the sister‘s granddaughters over decades of life. It had it all, beer, pie, tender hearted yet tenacious grandmas, the unknown things in life families do for each other without acknowledgement, the heartache and joy of life. Just so good. Pick!

Maria514626 Sounds lovely. Plus, I live in Minnesota, like beer and pie. Tagged. 😄 1mo

Doing some audiocooking with the tagged book. The German students staying with us are leaving tomorrow, so I'm making a hybrid California-German dinner of turkey burgers, kale salad, and Käse Spätzle. I've never made Spätzle before but it says it's authentic, so...

DGRachel Spätzle is one of my favorite things, but I don‘t bother trying to make it at home. It never comes out right. The German restaurant near me does a fabulous job with it, so I go there whenever I have a serious craving. 2mo
ImperfectCJ @DGRachel I can't eat Spätzle so I don't know how this tasted, but my children liked it and the Germans seemed at least amused at my attempt, so I'm calling it a win. But now maybe I'll try to find a German restaurant so my kids can try Spätzle that's not from a bag. 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ All I can say is that this book was good for my soul. I adored @jryanstradal ‘s first book, KITCHENS OF THE GREAT MIDWEST, but I think I loved this one even more. I will admit that it hit a lot of personal notes with me, but that was just the icing on the cake. It‘s a family novel that contains a history, but never seems overly epic. And it is the perfect book to read while sitting in the backyard on a summer‘s evening.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️No sophomore slump for Stradal! Such a delightful book. I really liked Kitchens of the Great Midwest, but actually liked (loved) this one even more.

“Her grief was a forest with no trails, and she couldn‘t guess how long her heart would walk through it, as her body walked other places.”

Will be in my top five for 2019.

Two very different sisters, Edith and Helen, let an inheritance drive a wedge between them. From 1959 to 2018 we watch them mature. Helen with her passion for brewing, Edith with her talent for baking and caring for others.

From Helen‘s desire to win and Edith‘s granddaughter Diana‘s willingness to do whatever it takes to survive; they are strong, complicated women. Without spoiling anything I can say I loved it & didn‘t want to put it down.

Shy of 50% mark, it was dragging a bit & I was worried. It picked up again—whew! Like Stradal's Kitchens of the Great Midwest, this book weaves through time & generations. It's probably a good thing that I read this some years after being encouraged to drink craft beer by Number One Son. I mightn't have had as great an appreciation for the story if I didn't have familiarity with the beer types. [Don't let lack of beer knowledge stop you, though.]

JoyBlue [Loved Judith Ivey's narration, by the way.] 3mo
