From the Review Pile (51)

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!

This week, I'm going to showcase The Sweetness of Forgetting!

I've been reading some pretty 'heavy' books lately with serious issues, so it would be nice to read something a little easier on the soul! I'm sure that this book isn't all happiness, but with the mention of Paris and star crossed lovers, it certainly can't be all that bad!

The North Star Bakery has been in Hope's family for generations, the secret recipes passed down from mother to daughter. But at thirty-six and recently divorced, with rebellious daughter Annie and elderly grandmother Rose to care for, Hope is less than enthusiastic about carrying on the family legacy. When the bakery runs into financial trouble and Rose takes a turn for the worse, Hope's delicate balancing act is in danger of crumbling entirely.

Then Rose reveals a shocking truth about her past and everything Hope thought she knew about her family and the bakery is turned upside down. At her grandmother's request, Hope travels to Paris, armed only with a mysterious list of names. What she uncovers there could be the key to saving the bakery and the fulfilment of a star-crossed romance, seventy years in the making.


  1. this does look like a light read but the whole her finding out about her past signifies there is something heavy about it. Still, will have to check out your review of it!

  2. I love foodie books, they're always so much fun... this one does see to have an underlying serious story but hopefully will end up being the light read you've been needing! :) Hope you enjoy!
