I fell right into How to Be an American Housewife, a book I read as part of the BlogHer book club. A Japanese war bride, a secret story, and of course, the mother daughter dynamic and sibling dynamics.
Throw in a retro housekeeping/parenting and cook book and you have me hooked. Yes, there was a now “retro” cookbook as a key part of the plot.
You want to read this book and I can’t really explain all the reasons why! It falls into the tattling on my friends problem with books I really love.
