I chose this book because I found it on a search in the NoveList database--I was looking for novels that include recipes. This particular story is the 13th book in a series of 20, but I was able to follow along quite well without having read the previous 12 books. The main focus of the series, I believe, is quilting, although this story definitely put a lot of emphasis on various dishes and treats enjoyed by generations. There were so many recipes at the end of each chapter, I felt the book was a bit of a treasure! The story itself was light and quick to read--I may yet go back and begin at the beginning of the series! -- recommended by Tracy T. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Tracy's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
