Two years ago, Olivia Martindale left behind her Montana
hometown and her husband, Jace, certain it was the best
decision for both of them. Back temporarily to protect
her almost-adopted daughters from their biological
mother, she discovers an old, handwritten cookbook in the
attic. Its pages are stained and torn, their edges
scorched by flame. Some have been smeared by water . . .
or tears. The recipes are written in different hands and
in different languages. In between the pages are
intriguing mementos, including a feather, a pressed rose,
a charm, and unfamiliar photographs.
Hoping the recipes will offer a window into her
grandmother’s closely guarded past, Olivia decides to
make each dish, along with their favorite family cake
recipes, and records her attempts. The result, like much
of her life to date, involves a parade of near-disasters
and chaotic appearances by her doctor mother, her blunt
grandma, her short-tempered sister, and Olivia’s two
hilarious daughters. The project is messy, real—and an
unintended hit with viewers.
Even more surprising is the family history Olivia is
uncovering, and her own reemerging ties to Montana, and
to Jace. Generations of women have shared these recipes,
offering strength and nourishment to each other and their
loved ones. Now it’s Olivia’s turn to find healing—and
determine where her home and her heart truly belong.
