Velma Still Cooks in Leeway

“In the meantime, while you’re hurting and healing, you do whatever it is the Lord’s given you to do.  I cook.  I look over a table full of good things the Lord’s already made, and I turn them into my own sort of love.  Sometimes I don’t know what does people more good–my prayers or my recipes.”

That quote comes from this book:

Ever since I finished Harry Potter it is all I seem to be talking about!  I loved reading it and now that I’m finished I don’t quite know what to do with myself.  (The thought of reading textbooks is not nearly appealing enough).  I was talking to Grant and as soon as I said “I wish I had a fun book to read” I knew instantly which one I should pick up.  My copy is buried in storage somewhere, so I went to the library and took this out.  Velma Still Cooks in Leeway was one of my favourite books when I graduated from High School *cough* 11 years ago and I have not read it since!  I hope it lives up to my memory of it!

It is a story about a woman who owns the only restaurant in a small town… that’s about all I remember.  At the end of each chapter there is a recipe too… maybe I’ll try making something!


One thought on “Velma Still Cooks in Leeway

  1. I will get a copy too! Thanks for the suggestion. I have seen mystery books or even the trashy romance novels where the author puts in tons of knitting, crocheting, baking and cooking recipes too. I have resisted getting any because I figure can a person be a really good author and a good cook at the same time? Not very many. I have dozens of cook books, but not many of them make really riveting reading like a great novel can be.
