What a delight it was for me to get lost in A Table by the Window by Hillary Manton Lodge. I read a lot of books and I enjoy a lot of books, but this one was special. The addition of the recipes kept me wondering what good things were coming next. Now that I've read the book I think I'd like to visit the author and have a meal at her table because, seriously--the book is about food- good food, and the recipes look amazing.
The book is also about family secrets and there's a love story in there too. Don't be fooled, this is not a one-sided story, there are many levels here and it was a good way to spend my time.
Here's the back cover:
The beginning of every chapter has a food quote. Check these two out:
And here are the titles to just two of the recipes. I want this food. It's so hard to be a foodie living in a town of chain restaurants.
