About the Author: Barbara Chepaitis

I once asked a college class I was teaching to give me their biographies using one piece of paper, any way they wanted. I got back origami, paper airplanes, essays, crayola drawings and more - which made for some fun, instead of reading insipid, uninspired lists of facts.
My biography, using one piece of paper, would be a drawing of a tree, with roots reaching down through the darkest part of the earth toward its molten core, and branches straining toward the stars.
Birds, a few monkeys, a jaguar, and a million fireflies would populate the branches hung with all kinds of fruit and flowers. And it would be a big tree. Very big indeed.
Big as a soul.

An exciting new voice in women’s fiction, Barbara Chepaitis has penned a deft and delicious debut that explores the camaraderie shared by four exceptional women. Witty, acute, and infused with the warmth of a timeless family kitchen, Feeding Christine is a delightful ode to the unbreakable bond that exists between true friends.

Teresa DiRosa believes that life, like fine food, is made special by mixing together the best ingredients: time, patience, and a lot of love. Owner of a thriving catering business, Bread and Roses, she has turned the feeding of bodies and souls into her life’s work.

Now, with her niece Christine, best friend and bookkeeper Delia, and baker Amberlin, Teresa is gearing up for Bread and Roses’ biggest event of the year: their holiday open house. But as Teresa juggles recipes and decorations, her personal life is spinning out of control.

Her divorce is barely final when a handsome acquaintance hints that he’d like to be more than just friends. Her son has chosen to spend Christmas with his father. And her niece seems to be losing her grip on sanity as her wedding to a prominent psychologist approaches.

When Christine arrives distraught in the midst of the preparty cooking marathon, only Teresa can save her. The radical steps she takes to rescue her niece shock everyone, but with Delia’s and Amberlin’s help, Teresa feeds Christine a healthy dose of courage, wisdom, and love, in a wholly original, can’t-fail recipe for the ages.
