I had a little trouble getting into this novel, but once I did, I must say that it was an enjoyable read. For those out there who love foodie reads with recipes, this one is for you.
Really enjoyed this book. Portia has an uncanny knowledge of food that her sisters Cordelia and Olivia call 'the knowing.' When Portia feels she has to cook, entire meal plans come to her and they either calm, heal or bring people together. After the death of her beloved Grandmother, Portia heads off to the townhouse apartment in New York that was left to her by an aunt. What she's not expecting is Gabriel and his daughters, Ariel and Miranda who also inhabit the same building. It's a romance with many ups and downs and a satisfying ending.
A bit reminiscent of "Chocolat", this novel is about inherited special qualities (the "knowing"), food, family, love, finding oneself, and taking risks. I really enjoyed reading this book; it was yummy -- I had to devour it. I'm definitely going to look for other books by Linda Francis Lee.
A charming read, with a menu of a variety of characters. Not quite a feast, but a nice snack. Sugar for romance, cinnamon for flavor, jalapenos for spicy and stirred in with equal parts of
sadness, disillusionment, regret, along with hope.
a truly inspiring book. the characters are as vivid as ourselves. a great read. I loved it.
