The House on Sunset
By- Lindsay Fischer
Genre- Memoir/Women’s Fiction
Lindsay Fischer was once a high school English teacher with dreams stretching far outside the classroom. When her boyfriend of a year-and-a-half cheated on her, Lindsay found herself alone, looking online for a replacement. His name was Mike.
That’s where the nightmare started.
The House on Sunset is a memoir, a collection of reminiscences, scattering the ashes of two broken homes and putting them to rest. Each chapter offers a different glimpse inside the cycle of intimate partner violence, where honeymoon phases and traumas coexist.
Everyone could fall victim to abusers. This book bravely displays the reasons a quirky, twenty-something teacher would, and did.
Lindsay Fischer's Top 5 Favorite Desserts -
5. Angel Food Cake
Whoever first made it was sent from heaven.
4. Mint Milano Cookies
The mint and chocolate combination is one of my favorite flavor pairings I’ve found.
3. Fudge brownies
But, please, save me the edges (because I love the crisp sides). If you’ve ever tried Brownie Brittle, you know what’s up.
Another solid flavor combination and a quick fix when I’m jonesing for sweets (though, probably, too convenient for my waistline’s good).
1. Frozen custard
The flexibility of toppings. Do I want a sundae or a concrete? In St. Louis, the frozen custard business is competitive (especially based on region), but each place has its own specialty treat. It reminds me of simple times in childhood, hot summer days when we’d grab a sundae at the local shop, and any time I eat this I’m transported back to a point in my life when my biggest struggle was deciding what to say in my next speech (as 6th grade StuCo president).
