The book is interspersed with fascinating and delicious recipes for dishes that I will never cook but enjoy reading about.
Having had an 'irregular' mother myself, I was given comfort and reassurance by reading what
Ruth had to say about her parents and the insights she gained over time. It took me 19 yrs. after my
mother's death to come to terms with our very awkward relationship and learn to appreciate my heritage.
