    1. Erika Robuck on said:

      From the shores of California to an island in the Mediterranean, FROM SCRATCH is a rich, sensual reading experience Equal parts uplifting and devastating, it is a memoir of soul searching beauty As extraordinary and unique as Tembi Locke s life is, all readers will identify with the themes of love, family, and forgiveness Highly recommended.

      Probably would have given this book 2 stars, except that the writing really is beautiful It just wasn t what I expected This is a memoir about loss, period If that s what you re here for, then you will likely get a lot out of it, but it wasn t what I was hoping for at this particular moment in my life.

    5. Jessie on said:

      I really wanted to like this, to connect with someone else who has felt grief, but it fell incredibly flat The way it was written, I wasn t able to connect with the characters, and there was no plot It was simply a sad woman who ate pasta I expected to follow their love story and then feel the loss, grieving alongside Tembi, but it never happened.

    6. Rebecca on said:

      This was the perfect book for me to read during a week in Italy Not only is it set largely in Sicily, but it ticks a lot of boxes in terms of my reading interests food, travel, bereavement, and the challenges of being an American overseas During a semester abroad in Florence, Tembi Locke an actress I was previously unfamiliar with met and fell in love with Saro Gullo, an Italian chef His parents could hardly accept him marrying someone from outside of Sicily, let alone a black woman from T This [...]

    7. Isa on said:

      A beautifully written testament of accepting life with all that life has to give, of lovelove for another human being, love for parents, love for children and love for one s origins and birth place.
