    One thought on “The Last Supper Catering Company”

    1. This book will remain in my memory. It is perhaps among my all-time favourites; a simple, beautiful work of holy imagination. All about the power of love, and doing a given job in love. If that sounds prosaic, it isn't! Read the book and see

    2. This beautifully crafted, enthralling read touches your heart with its thought-provoking deep meaning and clear religious message.This beautiful story is one that touches your inner core, as you loose yourself within words that hold such meaning and such truth. The story focuses on the true meaning of life and death, by observing death through the eyes of God and his love for those upon earth; such as when he sacrificed his only son for us. This witty, emotive and clever tale complete with disti [...]

    3. Highly recommend! Must read!If you want to laugh, cry, and fall hard for a genuinely worthy heroine, please pick up a copy of The Last Supper Catering Company! I have been in denial for the better part of three weeks that this book came to an end. I think that is why it took me so long to write my review…I was so disappointed I had finished reading it already. When I wasn’t reading my copy, I was thinking about reading it and wondering what in the world the author would have this charismatic [...]

    4. This book was so sweet and charming and I loved so many of the euphemismsAnd so different too. I really liked the main character.My only fault with it. for such a spiritual and inspiring book about deathe writer had to put some foul language in the very middle of the book! I knowey were suppose to be gang membersbut really! If the F word doesn't bother you you will really enjoy it. And if it doesyou can skip the middle section where she helps a gang member.Which was the least realistic part of t [...]

    5. A delightful breath of fresh air (a strange thing to say about a book that had so much to do with death). I have a theory that an author's first novel is often their best because they have mulled over the ideas and aren't trying to meet publishers deadlines as sometimes happens in later books. I hope future books by Ms.McElroy are as well crafted as this one.

    6. 4 and a half stars for this one! This is an uplifting story with very likeable characters. It is also beautifully written. I hope there is a sequel!Because it deals with death, I would recommend this excellent book to mature young people on up.

    7. I LOVED this book and think it's a work of genius. The story is infused with magic and love, and the characters (characters in every sense of the word), are the kind of people I'd love to sit around with and shoot the breeze.

    8. I think this is the BEST book I have read all year, so far.A magical, spiritual journey that feeds the soul.Should be mandatory reading for everyone, and is one of those books, that I think, WILL BE, one dayG, BIG LOVE for this book !It is YUMDERFUL !

    9. Such a sweet story. We all need a little bit of B. Thankful Childe-Lucknow in us. Remember me, for I will remember you!! Definite read again kind of book.

    10. WOW! This book reaches way down into your heart making you laugh with and care about all the characters. But be warned: you cannot read this book without a good supply of tissues. Superb writing!

    11. B. Thankful Childe-Lucknow was born in 1950, just seconds after her mother died. She had red corkscrew curly hair, one brown eye and the other eye green; as if that is not enough to make her stand out, she also hears voices of the dead.After a tragedy rocks her world, a long forgotten paint-by-number picture of the Last Supper sets B. Thankful on a journey to find others who need the comfort of a last supper before leaving this world.At 18 years old, she has so far lived a sheltered life, she ra [...]

    12. I really wanted to like this more and I DID like it but someone should tell Ms. McElroy that sometimes less is more. I felt like it wanted to be a Fannie Flagg novel, or The Help, but every euphemism, cliche, and home-spun piece of wisdom was crammed in where McElroy thought it might fit. Would have been much better if some of the little bits of southern pretty were left out. And I agree with other reviewer about the foul language. Author could have conveyed how tough the gang members were witho [...]

    13. Real Life Wisedom And Fantasy This is, by far, one of the very best books I have ever read. I have lived a lot of life and have had the pleasure, and sometimes displeasure, of many books. This one is among my favorites, right near the very top. This author, in a gifted fashion, is I superb storyteller. She masters the weaving and intertwining of the main story and the sub-plots. The story takes the reader on a special journey with many special characters and experiences. This skillful writing wa [...]

    14. What a great story! Told in an entertaining and unusual voice, The Last Supper Catering Company is about a girl whose personal characteristics draw stares, and whose family is culturally diverse and not accepted by the local townspeople. Completely sheltered from the outside world to begin with, B. Thankful Childe finds her surprising life's calling at an early age and learns to use it to help others. As the title implies, there is a theme of showing love through cooking or sharing food which wa [...]

    15. This book is one of the best I've read in recent memory. The authors's way of expressing her main character's thoughts and feelings are indelibly vivid. If I could turn a phrase like this author, I'd write every day of the rest of my life for the sheer joy of sharing it! Perhaps I was ready for this book when I chose to read it. I'd like to think it was placed before me at this specific time for a purpose. My takeaway? Open yourself to love, and you will experience it everywhere in your life.

    16. Loved it. Very interesting premise. Quirky, lovable characters. B Thankful Childe Lucknow is rejected by everyone in her little town because of her looks but dearly loved by her grandmother, great grandmother and the black man who volunteers to be her dad. When they all die and leave her alone, she realizes she has to use the gift of hearing from dead people to help others leave this life and enter the next. Sounds weird but it's really a lovely, funny, touching , heartwarming story

    17. I loved the authors style of writing, loved the main character and her mission after her grandmother and daddy died. B. Thankful Childe Lucknow was born the day her mother died and raised in isolation by her big g and little g and daddy. She is a very innocent and wonderful character, I hope to see her again in another book. Warning in the mid section of the book she comes in contact with some gang members and there is some language.

    18. I absolutely loved every page of this book and every person in it! We were all put on earth for a reason. B. Thankful had a trying life. Her mother died while giving birth, people teased her for how she looked and for who she was and she lost everyone that had loved her. Many people would have given up but B. Thankful had a very important job to do. This is a book to read with a box of Kleenex at the ready. I am sad that the book had to come to an end. It is one of my favorites!

    19. Whatever our circumstances we all ask ourselves the question, Why am I here? This beautifully written book leads one to the sanctified magic that links all souls together. As the author writes, "God gave us hearts that mend again and again." And, "All a person has to do is hook you with one first rate story about their life, and by the end of the telling you will love that person as if you had known them your whole life." This book will stay with me.

    20. Wonderful book! Witty, Emotional, beautifully written! The main character, cleverly named B. Thankful, can communicate with those who have passed on and is given a very special job as a result. This book had me laughing, crying & contemplating life (and death) all the way to the end. I highly recommend it!

    21. Strange to say the least. Not all that sure how to rate it since I did like some of the persona, but the use of dialect was very off-setting. It also seemed to be way too short for what appeared to be an unending call to cook the last meals. There was also a fantasy feel to the novel that somehow didn't fit in with what I believe the author was trying to convey to her readers.

    22. First her momma dies, then Little G, and then Daddy. It seems more than B. Thankful Childe-Lucknow can handle until she discovers she can communicate with the dead. This is her story of helping people cross to the other side and comforting those left behind.Sweet story about faith, love and grief.

    23. I don't know what can be added that has not already been said. This was an amazing first novel with lovable characters and very humbling experiences. Truly the best inspirational story I've read in a very long time. Loved the ending! The author has left her readers wondering about a sequel. The possibilities are limitless.

    24. I loved this quirky book and was disappointed when it ended! Lots of folks who have reviewed it claim it as a Christian book, but I would not limit it to that genre at all. The heroine is something of a Holy Innocent with a very unusual gift that she struggles to use. She embodies--literally--unconditional love. It's beautiful and weird. You won't be sorry you read it.

    25. This book was so sweet and charming--It's unlike anything that I've ever read before. I wish I could give it ten stars. The writer has a wonderful way with words and I'm looking forward to her next book.

    26. I loved this book! Has become one of my favorites. I can't recall reading anything like it before - the characters were rich and deep, the story was incredibly inventive, I laughed and I cried many times. It was one of those I just hated to have end.

    27. one of the best books I've read in long time!One of the best books I've read in long time! My book club loved this book! Several members bought several copies of this book to keep on their shelves to share with others.

    28. A sad yet hopeful story. Whimsical and folksy with interesting characters. I felt as if the author was telling a bedtime story. If you read this book be prepared for the over-the-top country back roads vernacular.

    29. I wanted to like this book. I really did. I can see why people found it charming and unique. It was, at first. Then the story just got tedious for me, and I found myself just skimming it to finish it.
