    Friendship Bread
    I'll take a fresh slice! Anyone who has ever been the recipient of friendship bread starter will appreciate this book. We meet many people in the town of Avalon, and each has a story to tell, some are sad, some are heartfelt, and some are funny, but all need to be told. Darien weaves the stories flawlessly and adds a touch of whimsy with the friendship bread!

    Loved it!
    I JUST finished this book and couldn't wait to let everyone know that I consider it one of the best books, about women & their relationships, I've ever read! Book clubs would get a lot of discussion with this one, and that's something we always look forward to having.

    I would recommend Friendship Bread to women of all ages...and men who would like to understand them. ;o) My only disappointment was that it ended.

    Friendship Bread
    Winter has been especially long and harsh this year in Wyoming. Friendship Bread was a fresh, thought provoking treat! I am anxious to share this title with friends. A universal message written with colorful imagery; I welcome more work by the author, Darien Gee.

    Friendship Bread Not Satisfying
    The device of the friendship bread was very heartwarming, but for me the book was too long. The story was predictable and designed to tug emotional heart strings. The story line with Julia and Mark seemed almost trivialized. The major plot line was too dark and painful for the rest of the story.
  • Karen D. (Dedham, MA)


    Great Read
    This is a memorable book. Women and their friendships can be so heart warming. I loved reading this book. I like having the recipe and hope to make a starter soon. I liked the closeness of the small town and how life changes meeting just one person.
  • Jeanne M. (Vancouver, WA)


    Friendship Bread Rises to the Occasion
    Delightful glimpse into the families in a small town, and how the introduction of Friendship Bread impacts their lives Whether it is the person making the bread or receiving the bread, their lives are altered and the small town ultimately makes their town rather famous!

    This book is a wonderful intertwining of lives, that charmed me into finding out how each family is impacted by their taste of Friendship Bread. I loved reading this book--a light sweet "cake" of a book that I will share with friends and neighbors.
  • Jean O. (DePere, WI)


    Friendship Bread
    This book is an easy read. It is filled with believable characters, good plot and a lovely concept. Friendship Bread is a book about sharing and the array of options that one is given in life to practice living and sharing. As I read about the small town created for the story I found that I wanted to go visit, get to know some of the people there and enjoy a cup of tea. I enjoyed reading this book very much!
