Book Summary: I am a firm believer that women need chocolate. The book, The Chocolate Diaries is just that, a non-fiction book that provides women with everything they need to survive tough times with the help of family, friends, prayer, laughter, tears, and of course, plenty of chocolate. The book has a light tone and a good deal of life humor to make it a fun read and is laced with a touch of heart-breaking stories to keep it human. Karen Scalf Linamen, the author, approaches the “Secrets for a Sweeter Journey on the Rocky Road of Life” with palatable humor and bittter honesty that makes the book a must read.
About the Author: Karen Scalf Linamen is a Christian writer, speaker, and chocolate connoisseur. She has written several excellent books for women. Although this is not her first work on how to handle suffering with God’s grace and good chocolate.
My Impression: Karen Scalf Linamen is a master at weaving tales of her own tough times with the tough times of other strong women who achieved a much greater knowledge of self, the Lord, and, the importance of chocolate. Throughout the book the reader will find a multitude of quotes, ideas about how to satisfy a chocolate cravings, and some truly mouth-watering recipes (definitely worth a try) mixed in among a homemade batch of inspiringly true stories . I would highly recommend having a supply of chocolate (mine was special dark) on hand while reading the The Chocolate Diaries. It definitely enhanced my sensory experience.
