Author Ariella Cohen

Sweet Breath of Memory
In her debut novel, SWEET BREATH OF MEMORY, Ariella Cohen deftly weaves tales from several eras and the lives of four friends into the fabric of a picturesque New England town. Reminding us that 'Life is in the telling', the novel celebrates the healing power of narrative; by sharing our stories, even the most broken among us can be made whole.

"Filled with compassion, humor and honesty, Ariella Cohen’s Sweet Breath of Memory is a powerful story of forgiveness...Through food and friendship, a community releases its long held secrets, and Cohen provides solace for her characters and her readers."

Karen Brown, author of The Longings of Wayward Girls
