The book jacket states that Alexander writes “a lyrical celebration of a life well-lived.” This is so true. She beautifully illustrates the love she and her husband shared and the life they made together. She also tells stories about her husband Ficre’s life (he was from Eritrea, in the Horn of Africa) as a chef and a painter. Sadly, her husband died unexpectedly. The story continues as she and her two sons slowly but surely make their way from grief to light. The book is beautifully written and a fitting tribute to a wonderful and talented man.
