Family Fodder

toastBurnt Toast Makes You Sing Good by Kathleen Flinn is a recently published memoir which touched my heart.  In this novel, the Midwestern rooted author shares the stories of her family’s joys and sorrows.  Raised on a rural farm in Michigan, Flinn also reveals recipes of the loving relatives who shaped her life. I laughed and cried as I read this delightful book.  Flinn’s writing style is wonderful!

Writing this review reminds me of pep talks I have had with writing students and friends over the years.  So often we tend to view our lives as nothing out of the ordinary, when in fact, I believe each of us has a unique story worth telling.  Flinn has taken what to some might seem ordinary and made it extraordinary.  I applaud her for doing so and am inspired by her work.
