My warmest thanks for selecting FRIENDSHIP BREAD as a nominee for your Reader's Choice award -- I'm very grateful!

Please know that I am available to library staff, patrons and your community as a whole if you have any questions about the book, the writing process, or (of course) Amish Friendship Bread. May 2012 be a wonderful year for all of us!

I love this book. It's very sweet. The messages of hope and healing were beautifully written. At first it took me a little bit of time to adapt to reading from so many different character's views, but once I got used to the idea that this book is about a whole town, it made it that much more endearing. I love the main characters. I love that it tells a story of what the real human experience is about, and I love friendship bread. I'm eager to try some of the recipes from the website. Thank you so much Ms. Gee for such a lovely book!

I enjoyed this book so much, that I bought a couple of copies to give friends along with some Amish Friendship Bread.
