"A funny thing happened on Rebecca Barry's quest to write the Great American Novel...correction, 105 funny things. That's how many mini chapters make up Recipes for a Beautiful Life, her memoir about moving to a ramshackle house with a husband who constantly travels for work and two kids who won't sleep. Dip in and out without missing a beat or the message: Contentment isn't about getting everything (she hasn't written the novel), but finding the magic in the mess."
