Journal Entry 1 by Beqi from Daventry, Northamptonshire United Kingdom on Thursday, August 29, 2013
On the eve of her ninth birthday, Rose Edelstein bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the slice. All at once her cheerful, can-do mother tastes of despair and desperation. Suddenly, and for the rest of her life, food becomes perilous. Anything can be revealed at any meal.

Rose's gift forces her to confront the truth behind her family's emotions - her mother's sadness, her father's detachment and her brother's clash with the world. But as Rose grows up, she learns that there are some secrets even her taste buds cannot discern.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake is about the pain of loving those whom you know too much about, and the secrets that exist within every family. At once profound, funny, wise and sad, this is a novel to savour.

This was a nice book to read even if I did not understand the point of the story. It was also a sad or melancholy story. There was a family of four who did not much interact with each other.

I took Bender's book from today's meet-up in Kerava in order to deliver it forward, probably next month. Let's see what the receiver will think of the story :) The book cover is beautiful!

Thank you for the book and your company today, Annelis!
