The Summer Kitchen

The Summer Kitchen

From the million-copy bestselling author of Before We Were Yours comes an inspiring novel about one woman’s effect on a struggling Dallas neighbourhood.

Sometimes hope springs up in unlikely places. Sandra Kaye Darden certainly never expects to find it in the little pink house left by her uncle Poppy. With her adopted son, Jake, missing thousands of miles away, and her family life disintegrating, Sandra feels as if her life is falling apart. A decaying house in a struggling Dallas neighbourhood just adds to her burden. But what begins for Sandra as a simple painting project to help sell the house for sale becomes a secret venture that starts to change everything

Cass Blue is having trouble keeping food on the table since she left her foster care. When Sandra Kaye shows up with lunch one day, Cass has no way of knowing that the meeting will lead to the creation of the Summer Kitchen, a place of refuge that could reunite a divided community.

In this moving story of second chances, two unlikely allies realize their ability to make a difference… and the power of their Summer Kitchen to nourish the soul.

Perfect for fans of Kathryn Hughes and Santa Montefiore.
