The latest book in the Elm Creek series is a small one, not just on size but also content, with just 214 pages which also includes the recipe index. The story is essentially focused on two of the Elm Creek Quilters, the new cook Anna and Sylvia sorting through the historic kitchen ready for a refit. What they find along the way sends Sylvia back to her memories some of which are shared within the confines of the book. Each chapter is given to a family feast and then concludes with a series of recipes before moving to the next chapter.
The recipes are a nice touch to the book, and although I enjoyed the book, there were either too many recipes or not enough story, and I found that I was left wanting to know more.
