I ordered this book thinking it would be a sweet Christmas story of friends. I was disappointed with the foul language and immorality. I was glancing through it and did not even read it. Big disappointment.

I bought this book at the dollar store thinking it was a Christmas cookie cookbook. I was happy to find I had bought a novel and even happier when I started reading it and discovered it was a good story. There are some sad parts, but that is how life is. The history of common ingredients was interesting, the stories of each member of the cookie club rich and very real. I was already planning on planning a cookie exchange before I bought this book and now I have some really good ideas. If you are interested in cooking and stories about strong, but flawed and realistic women, you will enjoy this book. I can't wait to try some of the recipes.

I found this book intriguing. I have a group of lady friends who act as support and encouragement for each other much as these ladies did. I enjoyed the format of a cookie exchange because I make several hundred cookies each Christmas myself.

I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys reading about the strengths, sharing, and encouragement of women and how they support each other throughout life's trials and successes.

This book looked like it might make a nice book to give as a Christmas gift to some friends with whom I have done cookie exchanges. I am glad I read it before buying it for them.

Not that it's a bad book; --it was a good book. But the story is a bit depressing at times as the characters' lives (past and present) are recapped. Some folks may appreciate the deep focus on love and friendship, perservering through years full of both happy events and difficult times. I just personally prefer lighter reading to give for gifts at Christmas time.

Tucked in between chapters are cookie recipes, and also interesting information (history, health benefits, etc.) about common cookie ingredients like flour, salt, sugar, chocolate, nuts, cinnamon, ginger.

It's a good book. I would make sure you read it first to know if you would find it an appropriate gift for someone else though.

I listened to the unabridged version on 7 CDs.
I thought it was okay but not as "cheerful" as I would have hoped. As each of the 12 friends of Marnie hand out the cookies they have made to be shared, the story of their lives is presented. There are many single mothers in the group and so we are presented with the story of their struggles and triumphs: a death of a son, the many divorces, the stories of infidelity.
On the positive side, there is a very strong bond between the women and they are very supportive of one another. I guess this is why it is a popular book.
I did find her cookie receipes interesting, along with the discussion of some herbs.
