About the book
When 9-year-old Rose Edelstein bites into her mother’s home-made lemon chocolate cake, to her horror, she discovers she can taste her mother’s emotions in the slice. And her mother – her cheerful, can-do mother – tastes of despair and desperation. Suddenly food becomes perilous.
Review by CC Readers
People were puzzled and intrigued by this; disappointed that it offered no conclusions. Some were bored and found it lacking in action. The writing was good, poetic. Perhaps of more interest to younger readers. Described by one as “lemon drivel”
