Mayes is as generous a cook as she is a writer, flavoring her story with tasty descriptions of local gustatory delights--many of which are included in a small recipe book. She also serves as narrator, and the beguiling simplicity of her voice makes listening as enjoyable as spending an afternoon with a well-traveled favorite aunt.

This book started out strong and she does have a way with words but I'm at the mid-point and I find myself skimming pages for something interesting. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Carley Ash
