DescriptionAnn Pearlman’s irresistible debut novel provides the perfect ingredients for a fun and touching read about a group of women who gather each year to share a journey of friendship, hope, heartbreak—and recipes.
Every year at Christmastime, Marnie and her closest girlfriends mark their calendars for the cookie exchange. Everyone has to bring a batch of homemade cookies and a bottle of wine, but this year, it’s their stories that are especially important—the passion and hopefulness of new romance, the betrayal and disillusionment some relationships bring, the joys and fears of motherhood, the stress of financial troubles. On this evening, at least, the sisterly love they have for one another rises above it all. Celebrating courage and joy in spite of hard times and honoring the importance of women’s friendships as well as the embracing bonds of community, Ann Pearlman’s delightful novel speaks to us all.

This is the perfect book for the season and I did copy a few of the recipes out of the book because they sounded really wonderful. I really enjoyed the way these women's stories were told through the use of cookie recipes which starts off each chapter. This group of women will have you hungry for more of Pearlman's story telling. I read this book when it first came out and love it. If you enjoyed the Friday Night Knitting Club, you will probably enjoy this one as well.
