Angel Tungazara runs a small business, baking cakes for the parties and celebrations of her neighbours.
As her customers tell her their stories, Angel comes to realize how much each of them has to mourn as well as what they have to celebrate. And, finally, she comes to accept how much that is true of her too...This is a uniquely charming, gently moving, deliciously funny novel about life, love and cake.
Ultimately, it shows how the human spirit - even when pushed to its limits - endures and unifies us all.

Review by BarbaraEich
I loved this book. I found Angel, Bosco and all the other characters memorable. They'll stay with me for awhile for sure. The way the writer presented the characters and topics was fantastic. She introduced some tough situations and treated them with great tact and delicacy. The mood overall of the book is joyfull with strong, resilant people. You get a clear of the people and the country and what they're going through. I'm looking forward to any more books by this author. Great read overall.
