Hi Erin,
Thanks for the good question. I have Celiac and do my best to describe all I know about being GF.
That said, I have to keep the details as relevant to the story as I can.

Do you have Celiac? If so, you know that everyone can have a wide range of reactions from mild to severe. A friend I have can't walk down the flour isle at the grocery store. Others have trouble with gluten in things like makeup and soap. I am lucky in that my disease is not as severe.

Cheers and thanks for writing! Nancy (less)

I had the opportunity to read an ARC- and it was fast-paced and well written and good fun. I like the locavore element as well. It's a must read.
