    Carrie Kabak s Cover The Butter is the story of one woman s coming of age the twists, turns and broken relationships that brought her to that wrecked kitchen in what was once her marital home We re introduced to her controlling and manipulative mother, Biddy her mousy but attentive father, Tom her Scottish grandparents, the true heroes of this story, Mamgu and Griff and Kate s best friends from school, Moira and Ingrid We travel back in time to when Kate was a teen herself, standing complacently as Biddy ordered her about Trying to please her mother Trying to get her mother s attention.Kabak s novel is, first and foremost, an exploration of motherhood and what it means to be a mother and a daughter And Biddy Well, she isn t a very good one The entire length of the book, Biddy dangles her approval over Kate s head like a balloon visible but always out of reach Unattainable It s not until she meets Rodney dependable, boring, from good stock Rodney that Biddy finally begins to show her only child some approval And Kate craves it like a drug.I started Cover The Butter over the weekend and devoured it quickly, soaking up as many passages at a time as I could Highly readable and with excellent voice and flow, Kabak s writing was engaging, entertaining and unique Told entirely from Kate s perspective, I really felt like I got to know our heroine and could relate to her struggles to please everyone in the world but herself When her mother dismisses h...

    This was the first book written by Kabak I was impressed with her writing style Very descriptive and real Although the toxic family, family angst, personal trials suffered by the main character, etc, really got...

    I chose this book, wandering the aisles of the library, picking it up based solely on the title Which seemed odd Liked it a lot

    Wow.wow Amazing This book is certainly not for everyone, but it really hit home for me..it could almost be my memoir The story is touching, sad, and funny all at once It is so full of emotion that I was barely able to detach myself from it Kate is a genuine heroine that I both related to and felt for The writing is in journal entry style and has a beautiful flow The characters are ...

    I wanted to reset this because it was about a lady that recreated her life and opened a little cafe But that doesn t happen until the very end I found myself actually skimming through the book.

    At forty four, Kate Cadogan has finally reached her breaking point Returning from a disastrous weekend trip with her husband of twenty years, she finds her lovingly decorated home completely destroyed as the result of a party her teen son had while they were gone Kate wonders how on earth her life turned so completely sour After downing a few glasses of wine, she takes a trip down memory lane, beginning in 1965 when she was just fourteen.As she remembers each year, Kate muses on her experiences growing up in England with her controlling mother and weak father, and on life defining friendships that are her true salvation Her relationships with the opposite sex, as well as her choice of a career in teaching rather than catering were all strongly colored by her mother s influence In the end, Kate must decide whether she will take a step of faith in herself, or continue to live a life of mediocrity.This is an interesting combination of coming of age story and family saga Kate is a fascinating character It s not clear why she allowed her mother so much control over her life...

    I LOVED this book with its cast of characters Kate finally gets to the point where she is at the age, and something recently has happened, where she can pause and take stock of her life and how she got to where she is today She begins the story in the present time, where her son has just had his party, then goes back to Kate s growing up years, where we can really see her overbearing, manipulative mother and how Kate is treated,then back again to her current situation.This book came at a time in my life where I am ready to look deeply at my life, and so many of Kate s issues were what I have dealt with too, so this book spoke to me a lot I think almost every woman whose kids are grown and are wondering what to do next and or take stock of their life will really enjoy this book I wish I had bought this instead of gotten it from the library because there were a few things I wanted to underline and re rea...

    As an audio book, the reader s voice was so annoying at first that I did not think I would make it to the end I m glad I got over that and was really able to enjoy the story and characters The book was not what I thought it would be after reading the jacket description About 3 4 of the book is a retelling of Kate Cadogan s life that explains how she got to the opening scene in the story where she is fed up with where she is at in her life and marriage and is at a decision point Poor Kate has one of the worst mother s I ve encountered in quite some time The story is set in Wales where Kate grows up in the 1960 s Kate s mother dominates both daughter and husband relying on her constant Catholic moralizing and verbally abuses everyone into submission We follow Kate through several romances gone wrong, including her marriage to a man with some odd notions The name of this book comes from a scene in the bo...
