Escape to Italy with this sumptuous story of secrets and friendships under Mediterranean skies. Maeve Binchy for a younger audience, Pellegrino's inviting, sun-drenched formula proved to be a winner with her previous book, Italian Wedding. This one will be the same.

Book Description

A recipe for life should be a simple thing - love and happiness, family, friends and a little food. But life is rarely straightforward... Alice wants to make the most of life - after all, she knows how fragile it can be - and knows she never feels more alive than when she's cooking.

Babetta has spent a lifetime tending the garden of her tiny house on the Italian coast, growing food to feed a family now grown and gone. One summer these two women are brought together in a crumbling Mediterranean villa, with the shared language of food and the soil they grow it from.

There, under the heat of the Italian sun, or the shade of the pomegranate tree, secrets will be spoken, fears and hopes shared.

But life's lessons are not learnt easily.

Recipe For Life is a novel about discovering how life never stops surprising us, and about how, with a little love and courage, its flavours can be richer than we ever imagined.
