Book Review: The Way LIfe Should be  
The Way Life Should BeThe Way Life Should Be by Christina Baker Kline

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book. Angela Russo hated her job, felt she had no direction in life, and on a whim signed up for an Internet dating site. Answered the first blurb she saw. He lived in Maine. By chance they met in Boston. She lost her job (a great comic relief), and ventured out to move in with her Maine date. Of course, in real life, that's a dangerous thing to do. But Angela was ready for an adventure. Naturally, the love affair didn't work out. However, the journey to Maine made Angela realize that she was longing for a simple life from that which she was living in NYC. Angela met new friends with whom she spent Tuesday nights cooking the foods Angela learned to cook through her beloved grandmother.

This book, which I thought would be a typical chick book, turned out to be a delightful ready, full of wonderful recipes, great insights into life, and wonderful entertainment. When I reached the end, I wish there were more stories to read about Angela and her friends. Perhaps one day a sequel?????

This sounds a lot like a movie I saw years ago. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of it. It's called Baby Boom.
