Just as Tuesdays with Morrie affectionately presented unvarnished truths from a mentoring relationship between teacher and student, Over Salad and Hot Bread explores the life lessons that surface through the bond of two very different women.
A simple story of friendship, and so much more, this poignant, beautifully written book explores the relationship between two women, years apart, who are drawn together by a love for writing and road trips. The younger woman is an on-the-go mother/author/speaker, while the older is a free-spirited world traveler who was far ahead of her time.
This gentle memoir captures the tough and tender moments of their friendship through a series of vividly crafted stories sure to ring true to anyone who’s had a friend. The friendship that developed took both women on a journey of the heart—a journey that led one all the way to her forever home and the other to lessons she never thought to learn.
As you read the story of Mary Jenson and Nancy Bayless’s kinship, you’ll find your own heart opening to—and searching for—friendship of the richest kind.
Mary Jenson will tell you her biggest claims to fame are her thirty-five-year marriage to husband Ron and their two grown children who love spending time together as a family. It wasn't until she neared the empty nest time in her life that she entered the writing life; since then she has published three books and has partnered with her husband in some of his writing endeavors. Together they speak for FamilyLife marriage conferences. Mary serves on the board of the San Diego Christian Writers Guild and works with Moms In Touch International.
