"Jessica Fechtor was twenty-eight, newly married, and thinking of starting a family when an aneurysm burst in her brain. Fechtor's journey to recovery began in the kitchen as soon as she was strong enough to stand at the stove top and stir. There, she learned that food had something to tell her, and that it felt good to listen. In her bestselling debut, Fechtor shares her story, along with twenty-seven of the recipes that helped her find her way. Written with intelligence, humor, and warmth, Stir is a heartfelt examination of what it means to fix what's broken and live with what can't be fixed, to nourish and be nourished."--Back of container insert.
