Everything on a Waffle

Amazon.com Rating:

Primrose Squarp simply knows her parents did not perish at sea during a terrible storm, but try convincing the other residents of Coal Harbour on that score.... After realizing the impracticality of continuing to pay Miss Perfidy (a mothball-scented elderly lady) an hourly wage to baby-sit her, the town council is able to locate a relative, Uncle Jack, who reluctantly takes Primrose into his care.... But true sanctuary can always be found at a restaurant called The Girl in the Swing, where everything -- including lasagna -- is served on a waffle, and where the proprietor, Miss Bowzer, offers a willing ear, as well as sage advice.

Through a mixture of eccentric humor and probing philosophy, author Polly Horvath makes Primrose's search for peace and understanding a most memorable one. Each chapter includes a recipe from Primrose's mother, which Primrose transcribes (in her own inimitable fashion) on a memo pad over the course of the story.

For fans of this book, Primrose Squarp returns in 2012's One Year in Coal Harbor.

Description

"Everything on a Waffle is ultimately a folksy, Garrison Keillor-style take on small-town life, spiced with sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant anecdotes about the quirks and adventures of individual townspeople as seen through Primrose's wise eyes. It's a quiet, but very funny book, infused with the hope of a girl who knows in her heart that there are things that science, and even the uppity Miss Honeycut, can't explain." -- Karin Snelson, Amazon Reviews
