Just as Tuesdays with Morrie affectionately presented unvarnished truths from a mentoring relationship between a teacher and his student, Over Salad and Hot Bread explores the life lessons that surface through the bond between two very different women -- an on-the-go mother/author/speaker and 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. A wonderful choice for book clubs as well as individual enjoyment, their conversations and adventures are sure to enlighten and engage the hearts of all readers.
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.

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.
