An irresistibly delicious novel about the power of
loveâ€¦ and dessert.
Like other well-meaning
mothers, Julie Muellerâ€™s believed she did the right thing
when she secretly ended her teenage daughterâ€™s crush on
Michael Slayton, a wild older neighborhood
heartthrob with a penchant for Shakespeare and the
pedigree of trailer trash.
Twenty years later,
Betty Mueller has come to realize that was a big mistake.
Her daughter Julie â€“ divorced and raising a teenage
daughter alone â€“ is a workaholic obsessed with her career.
And Michael, the one man who could make her happy, is the
one man to whom she wonâ€™t speak.
Now dying and
determined to make amends, Betty stages her last great
feat of motherhood by reuniting the couple in a dessert
class where she hopes the sweetness of a chocolate almond
Torta Caprese will erase the bitterness of a
â€śSweet love, renew thy
force; be it not said thy edge should blunter be than
appetite,â€ť Shakespeare once pleadedâ€”though it will require
more than poetry and passion fruit for Julie and Michael
to renew their love.
It will, in fact, require
the sweetest sacrifice of all.
