In 1962, Imogen is an established food columnist, documenting her life on a small island off the coast of Seattle, her decades long marriage with her husband, and recipes for the meals they share. Joan is just starting her writing career in LA, but has been reading Imogen’s column for years. On a whim, Joan sends Imogen a letter, containing a packet of saffron, and a recipe, and thus begins a “soul-deep” friendship. Though at completely different stages of their lives, and living at opposite ends of the West coast, the two women’s connection, and shared belief in the power of food, changes their lives in ways neither could ever have imagined.
A witty and sweet testament to friendship and flavor. If you loved The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, you will love this book! –Skye
