The premise is that a young girl whose family structure is crumbling suddenly develops the ability to sense the emotions of those who prepare the food she eats. She retains this through adulthood as her family continues to splinter. There were some really nice parts to this book and thoughtful observations on human fragility, but for me the emotions-through-food gimmick diminished the rest of the story.
