Miss Cecily’s Recipes for Exceptional Ladies by Vicky Zimmerman

“When her life falls apart on the eve of her 40th birthday, Kate Parker finds herself volunteering at the Lauderdale House for Exceptional Ladies. There she meets 97-year-old Cecily Finn. Cecily’s tongue is as sharp as her mind, but she’s fed up with pretty much everything.

Having no patience for Kate’s choices in life or love, Cecily prescribes her a self-help book…of sorts.Thought for Food: an unintentionally funny 1950s cookbook high on enthusiasm, featuring menus for anything life can throw at the “easily dismayed,” such as

  •  Breakfast with a Hangover
  •  Tea for a Crotchety Aunt
  •  Dinner for a Charming Stranger

As she and Cecily break out of their ruts, Kate will learn far more than recipes.”    Amazon.com
