My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is like a big family dinner - full of warmth, too much food, and the occasional crazy relative! The main character finds herself in a termless state - you can't be a widow without being married, so what are you when you lose your fiance? - and flees to the one place she thinks she could find peace. Instead of peace she finds herself dealing with her estranged sister, her dead fiance's brother, and some truths that are hard to handle.
Intermixed with the narrative you'll find delightful Italian family recipes, a reminder that food and family are often a part of our own stories.
