This short book would make a perfect gift for someone going through a difficult time. Hoffman wrote it after being diagnosed with breast cancer and each short chapter is a roadmap to help heal.

From “Choose Your Heroes,” to “Choose to Enjoy Yourself,” Hoffman sprinkles in advice with literary quotes and tasty recipes. In “Choose Whose Advice You Take,” Hoffman shares anecdotes about her grandmother while providing suggestions for those who want to support someone going through a tragedy. Hoffman’s writing style makes this one easy to recommend.
