Carol Bumpus Author, Travel Writer, Historical Fiction, Non Fiction, Food Writer

Welcome to my website! Here you can explore my writing, which includes excerpts from my historical novel, A Cup of Redemption, and my cookbook, Recipes for Redemption: A Companion Cookbook to A Cup of Redemption.

On my blog, you can catch up on my ongoing essay series, “Savoring the Olde Ways.” I am passionate about family and food, and the traditional foods that bring families together at the table. So, these blog posts are compilations of intimate conversations, stories and recipes I have gathered from families as I’ve traveled. Part culinary memoir and part travelogue, the essays will culminate in an upcoming four-part book series, also titled “Savoring the Olde Ways.”

Enjoy these pages, check out the events and book club activities, and sign up for my newsletter to get occasional updates about news and events. I welcome your comments and please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like me to speak to your book club or cooking group. I am happy to hear from you!

Rising out of the ‘collateral damage’ wrought by war, what emerges is a touching story about love, loss, friendship and the powerful desire for wholeness through redemption.
