Along with the recipes, lovingly handed down from generation to generation, Kat quickly discovers that the book is a conduit into the lives of the remarkable women who contributed to it. Through their stories, she embarks on a journey of discovery about herself and her unexpected heritage, and about persecution, love and understanding.
It turns out that the book brings her more than she could have ever imagined.
