My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A big thank you to NetGalley and Llewellyn Publications for this whimsical ARC of A Cart Full of Magic: Your Secret Supermarket Shopping List by Ileana Abrev.

I read this book on my way to visit with my parents in Québec. My mom used to tell me stories about her mother and how she used to be the country doctor in the early 19th hundreds. My grandmother was a “Sage Femme”. Way before doctors came along in that remote region of Québec, she delivered babies, provided natural remedies for colds, headaches, monthly discomfort, toothaches and many more illnesses. All this changed once doctors started to establish themselves in that region and started a campaign to discredit midwives. My grand-mother soon felt like this would turn into a witch hunt and abandoned her practice. Her craft was never passed on to her daughters, therefore, not to me either.

When I came across this book; I was very intrigued and curious and requested an ARC to see if this might help me gain some of the knowledge my grandmother would have had. I am not sure if I succeed, but I really enjoyed all the information Ileana Abrev offers in this book. I already tried one and it worked. My mother has major short term memory issues. While visiting with her this weekend, she lost her wedding rings. I used the knotted sock suggestion and we found her rings within 15 minutes in the most uncommon place. It is a marvel we found them.

If you are curious about how common items which can be found at your local supermarket can help you bring positivity in your home, chase negativity, increase passion in your love life and many more; this book is for you. This is a quick read filled with surprises.

This book will be available at your favorite bookstore on July 8th, 2018.
