From debut author Jennifer Gold comes a delicious novel about the sweet and sour ingredients of life and love. After learning of her husband’s infidelity, Elle, an accomplished baker, bakes her way through her collection of favorite recipes to awaken old memories and revisit key moments in her life.
Jennifer Gold believes love is sweet and life is messy, which is probably why she has a passion for writing about the relationships of career-focused women. When she’s not writing books, Gold spends time with her husband, horse, and two cats. Gold holds a master’s degree in writing and lives in Washington State.
On Do You Have Kids? Life When the Answer is No, imagine having your own team of honest childless aunties, wise childfree godmothers, and savvy experts describe life’s options and challenges when you don’t have kids. Do You Have Kids? Life When the Answer is No weaves together perspectives of non-moms aged 24 to 91, a growing body of research, and the author’s own story into a practical guide to what life without kids can entail.
