Female Nomad and Friends -- A Review

Breaking Free and Breaking Bread Around the World -- the subtitle of this books says so much about Female Nomad and Friends .  Over forty authors joined forces to make this book a reality.  Each author tells a tale of a moment in life that found that author connecting with others in a manner that left a deep impression.  The authors are as varied as the countries that make up this planet, yet each one shows how we are all alike in many ways. 

One of the easiest ways for two people to connect emotionally is to share a meal.  With this in mind, the recipes inter-mingled with the stories are as varied as the authors.  Everything from baked beans to Ho Mok, Grandma's fried chicken to Sun dried Mopane Worms.  If the stories alone aren't adventure enough, the recipes will be.  Before finishing the book, I knew it was food for both body and soul.

The people in this book aren't famous, rich or powerful --not in the usual sense of the words.   Yet, you can't help but feel you are witnessing daily miracles as you read their stories. These are the people that make up this world, your friends, family and the new people that just moved in down the block.  Their individual moments are miracles we see every day if we take the time to notice and open our hearts to receive. 

I can't help but feel that these authors have found what the world needs to bring about peace on a planet-wide level.  Their stories will stay with you, showing up at odd moments, entering your dreams, and causing a subtle change within your soul as you go about your day.  You will find yourself smiling more, greeting strangers, and finding more things to cherish.  This book does not belong in a particular genre, it is a book for mankind.  Are words powerful enough to change the world?  Read Female Nomad and Friends and you will know they are.
