Okay. This is a review with two different views because

1.) Alice Water's vision and mission in regards to food was trailblazing. Fresh ingredients and preserving farms is something vitally important. Being self-sustaining is huge. Loving food for what it can be and do is why I love to cook myself


1.) I do agree with other reviews that this book does feel tone deaf. Or at the very least it is not approachable. Because not everyone has access to fresh ingredients. It is freaking expensive to dine at restaurants like Chez Panisse (For instance, it's $175 a person PLUS a 17 percent service charge AND a 10.25 percent sales tax).....that's too rich for my blood. And frankly, the small businesses chefs claim to want to help.

That is a pet peeve of mine. Unapproachable prices for the masses....

I had heard a lot about Ada Lovelace, but I knew nothing about her. So when I found out she was the daughter of Lord Byron, I knew I was on the path to finding COMPLETELY new things.

She was creative like her father; she enjoyed math and science like her mother. Add both together and combined it with her imagination.

This is a great read. The writer keeps you engaged and wanting to read farther. There are challenges that the characters work to overcome but there is not a lot of violence and gore. There is conflict that threatens to turn violent but in comparison to other writing, this is tame. The story is still exciting though. Well worth your time to read.

I much prefer the newer graphic novel about Joan of Arc.
This is just too much information.
