Publisher's Description

There’s nothing quite like family—for good or bad. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do the people sleeping right down the hall, it’s easy to forget that walking through life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly mundane. There’s even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the middle of the ordinary. And since time’s-a-wastin’, we need to be careful that we don’t take our people—and their stories—for granted. Whether it’s a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with the people we love the most.

Written in the same witty style as Sophie’s BooMama blog, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of Sophie’s very Southern family. It’s a look into the real lives of real people—and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all.

    This book is full of very amusing stories of quirky personalities, and touching reminiscences. The tales are almost always upbeat, but the drama of life is included too. I love the writing style; I can almost hear them talk. As the author says, "_this book is not meant to be An Airing of the Grievances; it's meant to be a celebration of family." And that it is. The author celebrates life and relatives and friends beautifully (even if she admittedly embellishes here and there). I was alternately touched and laughing aloud. I felt welcomed into her family. Sophie Hudson mentions a few Bible verses, and talks about how the Lord wants us to share stories, talk, laugh, and remember. She even includes recipes. I am glad I bought this book.

    A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a collection of heart-warming stories that will make you laugh and wish for home. The author shares some of her most cherished family memories and the people that made the memories worthwhile. In her stories, readers fall in love with her family from her loving parents, quirky mother-in-law with a heart of gold, sweet great-mother-in-law, as well as her siblings, aunts, uncles, husband, son, and cousins whom seem very close to the author. These stories also give you a glimpse of what it is like to be in such a close family unit where everyone seems to adore each other and celebrate family moments. What I really liked about her stories, however, is that she included her own spiritual insights and the lessons that she has learned along the way starting from childhood to present day. From these stories, I saw a picture of a family that loves Jesus and each other. They seem like a family that takes time to help each other out without expecting or asking for anything in return and this reminded me that this is how God intended families to be. I believe that God intended families to model unconditional love towards each other as He loves each of us unconditionally and I saw this model being played through the pages of this book. Another thing, which I appreciated about this book were the recipes in the last chapter. I can't wait to try them out and when I sit down to share them with my family, it will help to remind me of the lessons I learned by reading this book.

    This was a wonderful book. It had me laughing (and sometimes crying), pretty much the whole way through. Sophie is hilarious and it translates well in her writing. Although it was written somewhat like a blog, it made for an easy, funny read, with sweet and tender moments. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

    This book is absolutely delightful! It had me crying, laughing and everything in between. Sophie's writing makes the reader feel like they're in the story right along with the characters. The book keeps the stories engaging, but real and always in an environment of complete respect which was one of the very best parts. She manages to tell great stories that can make the reader laugh or cry but never at the expense of the main characters. A whimsical read!

    I enjoyed the stories Sophie tells. It reminds me a lot of my own Southern family, even though the details are different. And I feel like if I met the folks she write about (particularly Martha! can you imagine? CAN YOU IMAGINE?!) I would know them right off the bat. And that makes me smile. (Though sometimes her use of fragments and parentheticals are a little much, they do serve a purpose.) The book definitely made me smile and laugh, though it has its sad parts too - after all, it's a book about life, and sadness and loss is a part of that journey.

    I appreciated how things really did keep tying back to God. It was refreshing. ...though I only remember 8 pounds of bacon from the stories, not 15...but there is an unexpected treat of a chapter of recipes at the end of the book. I can't wait to dig in.
