Lush and visual, chock-full of delicious recipes, Roselle
Limâ€™s magical debut novel is about food, heritage, and
finding family in the most unexpected places.
At the news of her motherâ€™s death, Natalie Tan returns
home. The two women hadnâ€™t spoken since Natalie left in
anger seven years ago, when her mother refused to support
her chosen career as a chef. Natalie is shocked to discover
the vibrant neighborhood of San Franciscoâ€™s Chinatown that
she remembers from her childhood is fading, with businesses
failing and families moving out. Sheâ€™s even more surprised
to learn she has inherited her grandmotherâ€™s restaurant.
The neighborhood seer reads the restaurantâ€™s fortune in the
leaves: Natalie must cook three recipes from her
grandmotherâ€™s cookbook to aid her struggling neighbors
before the restaurant will succeed. Unfortunately, Natalie
has no desire to help them try to turn things aroundâ€”she
resents the local shopkeepers for leaving her alone to take
care of her agoraphobic mother when she was growing up. But
with the support of a surprising new friend and a budding
romance, Natalie starts to realize that maybe her neighbors
really have been there for her all along.
