The Year of Miracles
Ella Risbridger
The author of the bestselling Midnight Chicken charts a year through the lens of her kitchen, weaving touching reflections on loss and love together with must-try recipes.
A year of loss, and every kind of romance, and fried jam sandwiches. A year of seedlings and pancakes. A year of falling in love. A year of recipes. A year, in other words, of minor miracles.
