Start Again from Scratch is an amazing story of a marriage that was restored after 17 years of misery! Laine and Steve Craft tell you their own personal story in both of their voices and end each chapter with a life "recipe," a "recipe card" where you can write your own notes, and a real recipe from Laine's kitchen. The book contains a lot of wisdom and practical tips that can make any marriage better! It also carries the cooking theme throughout the book, which makes it unique and fun. My husband and I have been struggling lately after 19 years and 9 kids together, and Start Again from Scratch helped us get back on the same page. Now we're sizzling again! I highly recommend this book to every married couple and even to those considering marriage, but especially to those who want to call it quits or have started the process to do so. You CAN love your spouse again. You CAN learn to start over and have a marriage that is better than it has ever been. The Crafts are living proof. Their marriage turned around more than 10 years ago and they are still going strong. Great book!!!!
