A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet by Sophie Hudson
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.
A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet by Sophie Hudson is a fun, honest book that is overflowing with the love, tears, joy, and other issues and emotions that arise when you put a close, Southern, extended family together. As a member of a large Southern family myself, I was able to immediately relate with the experiences and family members that Sophie described in her book. The book is written in a delightful style and was a simple yet personally convicting read. I liked Sophie's easy style and her inclusion of her personal experiences, feelings, and struggles throughout her lifetime. The book also comes with recipes of classic Southern recipes that Sophie has talked about at different points in the chapters. Overall, I would highly recommend A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet to any reader, Southern or otherwise, who is looking for a sweet yet humorous read that blends hot summers and delightful Southern food in a satisfying way.
