Bakeless Sweets: Faith Durand
There´s nothing quite like family - and some people would say that there´s nothing better. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do about the people sleeping right down the hall, it´s easy to forget that walking through life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly mundane. There´s even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the middle of the ordinary. And since time´s-a-wastin´, we need to be careful that we don´t take our people - and their stories - for granted. Whether it´s a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with the people we love the most. Written in the same witty style as Sophie´s BooMama blog, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of Sophie´s very Southern family. It´s a look into the real lives of real people - and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sophie Hudson.

Sie fällt aus allen Wolken, als der Unbekannte auf ihrer Ranch auftaucht. Ehe Faith sich versieht, verdreht Evan ihr ganz und gar den Kopf. Aber sie weiß nicht, welches Spiel er in Wahrheit spielt. Ist Evan wirklich der, für den er sich ausgibt? ´´Außerdem denke ich, dass du sehr wohl gerettet werden willst, süße Faith. Aus der unerträglichen Eintönigkeit deines Lebens. Hinein in ein Abenteuer, das zumindest das Potenzial hätte, über eine einzige Nacht hinauszugehen.´´

With eloquence and wit, Wayne Hoffman explores the unlikely camaraderie between a young Jewish man and an Orthodox rabbi, in this rich, insightful novel about love, honesty, faith, and belonging. In Yiddish, there is a word for it: bashert - the person you are fated to meet. Twenty-something Benji Steiner views the concept with skepticism. But the elderly rabbi who stumbles into Benji´s office one day has no such doubts. Jacob Zuckerman´s late wife, Sophie, was his bashert. And now that she´s gone, Rabbi Zuckerman grapples with overwhelming grief and loneliness. Touched by the rabbi´s plight, Benji becomes his helper - driving him home after work, sitting in his living room listening to stories. Their friendship baffles everyone, especially Benji´s sharp-tongued, modestly observant mother. But Benji is rediscovering something he didn´t know he´d lost. Yet the test of friendship, and of both men´s faith, lies in the difficult truths they come to share. With each revelation, Benji learns what it means not just to be Jewish, but to be fully human - imperfect, striving, and searching for the pieces of ourselves that come only through another´s acceptance. 1.
