Two women at opposite ends of life, both grieving from losses of different kinds, come together over cooking. A familiar premise, and the end was also a bit predictable, yet satisfying. This was one of the saddest books I've read in a long time, and I thought about putting it aside. I'm glad I didn't. The heavy descriptions of grief, the ways people hurt one another intentionally and inadvertently, and the power we have to help one another heal even as we move ourselves toward healing--powerful.

"Happiness is an act of faith. But you can't let it in and be done with it. Emotions come at you from all directions. I forgot to cover my head. It had been a while." (122)
