Ruth Reichl

Billie Breslin has traveled far from her home in California to take a job at Delicious!, a Manhattan food magazine. Billie feels like a fish out of water--until she is welcomed by the magazine's colorful staff. When Delicious! is abruptly shut down, Billie agrees to stay on to maintain a hotline for reader complaints. Working alone, Billie discovers a cache of letters written during World War II by a plucky 12-year-old to legendary chef James Beard. Will the letters inspire Billie to come to terms with her fears? A sumptuous read by celebrated food writer Reichl (Not Becoming My Mother, 2009).
