Lillian, chef/owner of a small restaurant, is at the core of a diverse group of customers, employees, and cooking students, each of whom is dealing with endings and beginnings. Narrator Cassandra Campbell's soothing voice sets the mood for this novel told from multiple points of view. While maintaining a consistent tonal quality throughout, Campbell changes her expressive interpretation to fit the personality and thoughts of each main character. She’s convincing when portraying the young adults, both male and female, and is especially impressive in conveying the worsening dementia of one of the older women. Listeners will be fully invested in this story about chosen families and friendships spiced with evocative descriptions of the tastes and smells of good food.
