The Kitchen Congregation: A Daughter's Story of Wives and Women Friends
In dazzling prose, Nora Seton passes on the rich dialogues between women in her life, the shared comfort and pain of motherhood, the bewilderments of men, and favorite recipes--coded love handed down through generations in the kitchen--the heart of the home.
Written in a style that echoes the language of women, the fluid comma-after-comma way our thoughts spill out amidst the intrusions of children, the softly ever-reflecting tone of our internal conversations, The Kitchen Congregation is told in tales from the kitchen, the place where women, mothers and daughters particularly, still congregate, after years of broken traditions and new opportunities.
