Description
The Agatha and Macavity Award–winning creator of the Maisy Dobbs mystery series here offers a standalone novel set during World War I. The ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, friends since girlhood, have become strained, both by Thea's passionate embrace of women's suffrage and by Kezia's imminent marriage to Thea's brother Tom, who runs the family farm. Thea's sarcastic gift to the bride—The Woman's Book, an actual home management guide from 1911—soon becomes a genuine manual for carrying on, as Tom is sent to the battlefront and Kezia must manage the farm. In letters, he sends her only hopeful news, while she describes in detail the recipes she purports to make for him. "Winspear has returned," noted Maureen Corrigan on NPR's Fresh Air, "to the wartime period that clearly continues to haunt her. In a publishing season crowded with commemorations of the outbreak of World War I ... Winspear's books more than hold their own."

"It is in Kezia's imagination and kitchen where this tragic story of war, passion, love and friendship comes alive. Winspear illustrates how food—whether it's imaginary or real—can provide the perfect amount of tenderness and compassion when it's needed the most.... A suspenseful wartime narrative."—SFChronicle
