I'm so behind on my reviews. Sorry. I finished this over a week ago. It was my hardback read. At least it didn't take nearly a year like my last 'real' book. I think the font, paper color, size of page worked out pretty well for my crazy eyes. And I loved the sisters and their stories.

How does one live so long as the Delany Sisters? (Well over the century mark.) They tell us what they think works, at least for them. They even include their favorite recipes from soap to cobblers. Since I don't like to cook, those weren't for me but other readers will love that. My favorite parts were reading how the sisters related to each other, their family and the world at large.

Since it was an easy read for me, it will be quite a fast one for those with better eyes. Maybe you'll glean some good advice for your own life.
