Ruth Reichl celebrates food in her dazzling fiction debut-a novel of sisters, family ties, and a young woman who must find the courage to let go of the past in order to embrace her own true gifts.
Billie Breslin has just landed her dream at Delicious!, the most iconic food magazine in New York. In an unfortunate turn of events Billie's career barely gets started before the magazine is shut down and what looks like an interim job to tidy up as the doors close turns out to be an amazing journey to a magical, life-changing discovery. In a hidden room in the magazine's library, Billie finds the letters of Lulu Swan, a plucky twelve-year-old who corresponded with the legendary chef James Beard during World War II. Lulu's letters inspire Billie to come to terms with her own truths - about her self, her adored big sister and her ability to open her heart to love.
