Easter is many things. First of all commemoration of the day when Jesus Christ rose from the dead."" This quote comes from the author's section on the joy of new beginnings, indicates the surface tenor of simple spiritualism presented here. There are the joys of anticipation in Lent, in the midst of suffering (""We have never known complete joy until we have known the joy that is to be found in the midst of suffering""), the joy of continuity (and a look back to a Judaic heritage), of celebration and communication (Faure to Faberge). Some recipes conclude the book; suggested readership, the acceptant, say the Christian Herald reader.
