About the book:
What does life have to throw at you to wake you up?
Spices and herbs does it for recipes, but in life, the answer is much more elusive.
From Spice to Eternity is an intriguing journey with Yvonne Pat Wright into her life of heartbreak, disappointment and despair and how she found her way to fullfilment and purpose through a love she never thought she would find. The book is a compilation of inspirational stories drawn from personal life encounters while living on two islands: Jamaica and Great Britain; stories of tears, loss and grief are balanced by joyous, exciting and triumphant tales, which above all, demonstrate the unrelenting and indefatigable love of God.
What does ‘spice’ have to do with it? Much indeed.
Each chapter is framed within the context of cooking with herbs and spices – a fitting metaphor for exploring and finding out how the common garden herb Rue ties in with the Jackson Five brothers, or what does Rosemary have to do with faithfulness?
An ideal present for both budding cooks and persons interested in self-improvement, From Spice to Eternity is a timeless serving of inspiration that will feed both soul and body with heart-warming stories and delightful, easy-to-prepare recipes.
