An International Bestselling Author
When Alice Hale follows her husband to the New York suburbs - and a big, empty house - she finds a vintage cookbook buried in a box in the old home's basement. She becomes captivated by the cookbook's previous owner - 1950s housewife Nellie Murdoch. As Alice cooks her way through the past, she realizes that within the cookbook's pages Nellie left clues about her life. When Alice uncovers a more sinister side to Nellie's marriage, and has become increasingly dissatisfied with the mounting pressures in her own relationship, she begins to take control of her life and protect herself with a few secrets of her own.
