Book Review: Kitchens of the Great Midwest


What a sweet book. This book is a glass of warm milk before bed. It's the one fuzzy blanket you have that is so soft and fits perfectly around you. It's comforting, and homey -- the perfect antidote for this indefinite winter.

Kitchens of the Great Midwest follows the astonishing life of Eva Thorvald through the lens' of those around her, and their own personal failures and triumphs. This is honestly one book where I don't want to give too much away, and may have even already over-hyped the book and ruined your opinion of it forever (in which case, I am so, so sorry). But what I can say is that you will definitely want to get your hands on this book and then wait until your shoes are soggy and your heart is aching. Then it will be your perfect bowl of chicken soup.
