A lovely little book. An American writer and an Englishwoman correspond about food and their lives. Sections alternate between the correspondence, his life, and her life. The writing was often beautiful and the story felt true and real to me throughout. It made me think about how many other hidden gems there are out there.

Very British. Very proper. No nonsense. Very slow to develop. Had same reaction as mbssmith - quite sad towards the end. Then a huge surprise in literally the last line of the book. You have to infer the ending, which is quite clever.

I loved all the cooking in this book. I found the part right before the end quite sad, but the very end was really good.
