Summary

Flora is forced to move back to the tiny island of Mure from the bright lights of London.

It's tough: even the beautiful landscapes and bright blue sea can't lift her spirits - she's too busy looking after her dad and her feckless brothers. Then she chances upon her mum's collection of recipes and begins to cook her way through it. As she reconnects with her family, and the place she was born, might she also find herself?
