What to Read: The particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

I love Aimee Bender’s writing.  And like everything she writes, The particular Sadness of Lemon Cake is fantastic.

Like her short stories, this book is both magical, and somber.  She creates beautifully detailed characters who are simultaneously relatable and fantastical.

Rose Edelstein is nine years old when we meet her, and it’s at this tender age that she discovers she has the ability to taste people’s emotions in the food they prepare.

Through this special talent, she discovers her mothers hidden feelings and so begins a haunting story about the inter workings of an unusual family.
