4.0 out of 5 stars this is "Sophie's bakery for the broken hearted"!
Great book, the excellent writing takes the reader straight into the character's complex emotions, and the unravelling of the situation is smooth and lovely. Grief is a tough subject but Lolly Winsont handles it beautifully and kindly.
This book was previously sold under the name "Sophie's bakery for the broken hearted", don't buy it twice (or offer the second copy...

3.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was going to be funny
I read the book because it was there but I would not recommend it to a friend.
I was sick in bed over Xmas and new year so I read it then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Laughter can be a Pretty Good Bandage, 7 Jan 2008

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Good Grief (Mass Market Paperback)
Sophie Stanton is thirty-six years old, has a steady, but unrewarding PR job in Silicon Valley and she is grieving. Married just four years when her husband Ethan died of Hodgkin's disease, she is not handling grief well. She devours Oreos like they're going out of style, can't seem to get enough of Cops on TV, goes without showering and then one day shows up at work in her bunny slippers and bathrobe. On top of that she has to deal with her mother-in-law, who is a perfectionist and wants to clean out Ethan's closest. She just can't keep it together.

So she lets her college friend Ruth convince her to come up to Ashland, Oregon, and she winds up staying, getting a job as a waitress. After a year she has embarked on a new carer, has a new house and has made a whole new group of friends, people who love her, people she loves back.

This is one of those happy and sad books that you just have to love, can't help but love. You know, sometimes when you are so sad, don't think life can get any worse, a little laughter may just be the cure, if not the cure, a pretty good temporary bandage.
