From page one of "Gluten-Free Girl: How I Found the Food That Loves Me Back...And How You Can Too", Shauna James Ahern's writing is about food first, in all its glorious, sensory detail. She makes it clear up front that celiac disease has not and will not destroy her love for gorgeous food and wonderful gastronomic experiences.

Her discussions of her symptoms and road to diagnosis will be valuable for people who wonder if they might have celiac disease or gluten intolerance. And her willingness to share her experience will make anyone who has been down the same path feel less alone and cast aside.

Ahern's candid discussions of gluten-free living and fabulous recipes will help food lovers grieving the loss of wheat-based items from their lives by helping them discover the joy of the foods they can safely eat and enjoy. However, this book is for foodies, not just celiacs or the gluten intolerant. It is incredibly inspiring for any reader and filled with recipes anyone will enjoy.
