    eBook Kate Moses ☆ ☆ Cakewalk PDF à cakewalk pdf, Cakewalk EpubSo did not want to finish this book because it just kind of unraveled 23rds of the way through but as I told several good friends after throwing the book across the room I have to finish because I have to warn the othersI've noted before that I'll read just about any memoir but I believe it's actually very difficult to write a good memoir This one started out so well Crazycrappy childhood with eccentric andor inattentive parents interspersed with recipes for baked goods ie the stress of bad parenting sweetened by sugar A perfect memoir recipe if you willTo illustrate why this book failed I am going to use a book by Vivian Gornick 'The Si

    eBook Kate Moses ☆ ☆ Cakewalk PDF à cakewalk pdf, Cakewalk EpubI'm glad I disregarded the litany of negative reviews before starting this book I'm not a seasoned critic by any means but I believe the purpose of writing a memoir is to draw the reader into your world Kate Moses succeeded to that end at least as far as I'm concernedAlthough my story so far is vastly different from hers I found myself wanting to sit with her over a cup of tea and a slice of cake her recipes are ridiculous and I envy her talents and just expound on life in general and the joys and sorrows of being a womanReading about the struggles she encountered I wanted to put my arms around her When she triumphed I wanted to celebrate with her This is how we as women at our best are wired I am so looking forward to sharing this book with the ladies in my book swap group because those are the kinds of relationships we have formedEvery person has a story that is unique and valuable and I thank Kate Moses for sharing hers with me

    eBook Kate Moses ☆ ☆ Cakewalk PDF à cakewalk pdf, Cakewalk EpubI had a hard time getting into this book It is a memoir Kate grows up with both parents in an unhappy marriage who stay together for too long and two brothers The family moves frequently due to dad's job Lots of dysfunction Kate finds comfort in sugar especially cake Each chapter ends with a wonderful recipe related to that particular time period in her life As in many most memoirs the power of the human spirit is amazing and how she not only survives but thrives is always great to seeThere is one section in the book that really resonated with me

    eBook Kate Moses ☆ ☆ Cakewalk PDF à cakewalk pdf, Cakewalk EpubMoses' memoir of a childhood imbued with sweets and two self absorbed parents reads like a sugar high you can't get enough but you know you're going to feel ill later The included recipes are like raisins in an oatmeal cookie they do stand out but the book needs the added sweetness Quite possibly the best chapters are the later ones in which the reader is introduced to M

    eBook Kate Moses ☆ ☆ Cakewalk PDF à cakewalk pdf, Cakewalk EpubWho can resist a memoir written by a lover of sweets? Certainly not meIn this somewhat disjointed memoir Moses takes us through her crazy childhood and leads us to her much saner adulthood Along the way readers will savor the sweets that got Moses through the tough times recipes are includedFrom the brownies that impressed MFK Fischer to the cheesecake for her father Moses tempts readers at every turn At times this memoir is jumbled and annoying But at other times it is beautifully written and joyous in its celebration of sweetsNot what I expected but still worth reading

    eBook Kate Moses ☆ ☆ Cakewalk PDF à cakewalk pdf, Cakewalk EpubI read this book because Nancy Pearl recommended it on her That Stack of Books podcast Nancy said this was a good memoir because the author had a happy childhood and also her brownie recipe was fantastic Have not yet tried the brownie recipe but must say if this is a happy childhood the bar is set very low A narcissistic mother a father who is never home and just plain cruel when he is home siblings who torture each other a succession of moves a probable eating disorder an entire cake for dinner an unplanned pregnancy and subsequent disastrous marriage Whew Will report back later on the authors brownie recipe which MFK Fisher asked for

    eBook Kate Moses ☆ ☆ Cakewalk PDF à cakewalk pdf, Cakewalk EpubThis book was definitely a mixed bag Started slow really got interesting then it seemed to lose its focusI think if the author would have stuck to her difficult childhood and how she over came it it would have been betterI liked the recipes after each chapter and hate that I have to return the book to the library without getting to try them all However sometimes she told a rather insignificant story in order to have a reason for the recipeNot a bad read but not a book I'll think of againunless I think about those recipes
