I just finished reading Julia's Chocolates. I loved it. I had a hard putting the book down. Luckily last night was Friday and no alarm clocks going off in the morning and I read until the end. It was a women's story, a story of abuse - child, alcohol, domestic violence. It was a story about finding yourself, valuing yourself - living life on your own terms. You felt the raw emotions of each of the characters and celebrated with their triumphs.
