With a little bit of flour and a pinch of love, anything is possible...

Rose-Ellen "Zell" Carmichael Roy doesn't cook, but she wears her late husband Nick's camouflage apron every day. That's her widow style. It's been more than a year since Nick's tragic death during a post- Katrina relief mission in New Orleans, but Zell can't bring herself to move on. Then, a postman's error spurs her to enter a baking contest in the hopes of donating the grand prize to the hurricane survivors in Nick's memory. After Zell's first attempt at baking goes embarrassingly awry, she meets Ingrid Knox-her motherless nine-year-old neighbor-and the two forge an unlikely friendship that will alter both their lives forever.



"Alicia Bessette has written a love letter of a novel. There's enough warmth here to fill your house on the coldest night."
-Justin Cronin, author of The Passage

"A strong, richly detailed debut novel, with a truly lovable heroine. . . . Fans of Cecilia Ahearn's PS, I Love You will find a lot to like here."
-Library Journal
