Heaping Spoonful Will Make You Believe in the Power of Starting Over When Claire Hamilton lost her husband to cancer, her self-image shattered overnight. Once a happily married and financially secure mother of two, Claire suddenly finds herself a single parent trying to keep her small bakery running smoothly. While she manages to continue her daily duties as mom, boss, sister and daughter, Claire's anger and inability to move on have her emotionally crippled. Luckily for Claire, the people who love her refuse to stop pushing her to learn to really live---and love---again. Claire's family is impossible to ignore: Lucy, Claire's man-crazy younger sister and employee, prides herself on being blunt and brash, but amazingly loveable. Claire's father is an ex-high school principal who, though he is a great help with the business and his grandchildren, can still make her feel like a teenager. Claire's mother, a southern belle suffering from Alzheimer's, helps Claire most of all by providing her with a surprising gift from her own past. ____ "Heaping Spoonful is a simple story overflowing with meaning. Claire is a brave, young woman--a lot braver than she gives herself credit for--who faces her fears and follows her heart, even when she is unsure where either will lead her. Shauna Glenn's ability to tell a story in a truly candid voice makes her characters as real as your next-door neighbor. Glenn is a lively, creative storyteller--and funny!" --Jennifer Nice, San Francisco, California Publisher, Editor and Award-Winning Author "After reading the first three pages of Shauna Glenn's new book, Heaping Spoonful, I sent her a text message telling her I wanted to marry her writing. Glenn is a literary artist. She has an extraordinary way of taking you from the past to the present to develop her characters. From the opening scene, Glenn uses her magic to pull you into the complicated mind of the book's main character as she deals with the death of her husband. Heaping Spoonful is a real page turner that will no doubt be the first of many successful novels by this new talent." Hal Brown, Publisher, Fort Worth Texas magazine "Full of honest emotion Heaping Spoonful makes you believe in the power of starting over."
