The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman, 2010
Published by The Dial Press
I really enjoyed this book, it was a quick read and it was about 2 sisters who reminded me of my girls in little ways. [Jess interjects: That’s me!] Reviewers have called it a modern Sense & Sensibility, and from all the literary references it is probably the perfect book for english majors and definitely dusty book lovers. There is a magical feel to the story that reminded me of Like Water for Chocolate. I think alot of you will enjoy it as much as I did.
