~Book Review~ How Sweet It Is by Alice J. Wisler
Deena Livingston wants nothing more than to move on with her life and forget the past. Still healing emotionally from a bad break-up with her boyfriend, and bearing physical scars from a terrible car accident that she was in, Deena leaves her chef's job in Atlanta and moves to a cabin in the North Carolina Mountains. Her grandfather, recently deceased, has left Deena the cabin on one condition; that she teach a group of middle school students how to cook. Flustered at first, Deena is apprehensive about teaching a classroom full of kids. However, she tackles the job head-on, and grows fond of her students. She also makes new friends; there is Jonas, the Eagle-song-singing handyman, Miriam, her supervisor at The Center, and then there's Zack. Zack, a social worker at The Center, with his curly brown hair and sparkling blue eyes. All of the kids love Zack. Deena's life is about to make some unexpected changes in a very special way.
This is a special story about being able to heal emotional and physical pain, finding the good within, and learning to love again.
