Review by

This book follows three separate people whose lives crash in around them unexpectedly and who have to find a way to go on. Lilia in the United States, Marc in Paris and Ferda in Istanbul - their stories are unconnected except that at one point they all buy the same cookbook. I found this mainly a sad story although there is some hope for (not all of) the main characters in the end. I loved how the book explored the importance of food and family. I was, however, quite upset by how the storyline of one of the characters ended. So, not quite a souffle of a book but one that is easy to read and still provides some food for thought.
