When journalist Beth Howard's husband dies suddenly, she packs up his RV and hits the American highways.

Publisher's Summary

When journalist Beth Howard's husband dies suddenly, she packs up his RV and hits the American highways. At every stop along the way - whether filming a documentary or handing out free slices on the streets of Los Angeles - Beth uses pie as a way to find purpose. She eventually returns to her Iowa roots and creates the perfect synergy between two great American icons - pie and the American Gothic House, where she now lives and runs the Pitchfork Pie Stand.

This beautifully written memoir shows how one courageous woman triumphs over tragedy, and is, ultimately, about hope. It's about the journey of healing and recovery, of facing fears, finding meaning in life, and moving forward with purpose and joy. It's about the nourishment of the heart and soul that comes from the simple act of giving, like baking a pie and sharing it with someone whose pain is even greater than your own. And it tells of the role of fate, second chances, and the strength found in community.

    Story
    "That's a lot of pie"

    I read an article about the author in The Los Angeles Times and was charmed by her story. I sought out the audiobook and was disappointed. What makes for an interesting article does not necessarily make for an interesting memoir. The pie metaphor turns dogged around,- I don't know,- the 50th reference.

    There is an element of L.A.-ish narcissism in how she needs to document her grief, blog about her grief, make a reality show about her grief, all in the guise of trying to work her way through grief. Well okay, that was cranky...I guess I just had too much pie.
