Aspen Vincent has a crystalline tone, an evocative style, and a satisfying storytelling voice. She does especially fine work giving these Minnesotan characters believable accents. The four generations of women who shape the plot are each given a unique sound. The plot of this mostly historical novel follows the dual course of two restaurant families. One founds a chain, Jorby's; the other runs the Lakeside Supper Club in northern Minnesota. A marriage unites the two, and family challenges--business and personal--move the plot along. There is a decisive and witty set piece in which a mother and daughter don't speak for a decade, and the entire proceedings honor this vanishing old-time eatery.
