Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child by Bob Spitz
Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child

Janice Schultz, January 30, 2013

We all new Julia Child as a cook book writer and television star showing us the ins and outs of French cooking. I wasn't sure this book would teach me anything new about her; but I was so pleasantly surprised! This book made her human to me. Her childhood, young adult life and marriage, and then finally her journey to cooking fame was a facinating read. I think anyone who is struggling with what to do in their life would be insprired by this woman who knew no age barrier and just went all out in life.
