Summary

The scent of freshly baked biscuits, lemon and aniseed reminds Elettra of her mother's kitchen. But her mother, Edda, is in a coma and the family bakery is failing. 

Elettra has many unanswered questions about Edda's childhood - the only clue is a family heirloom: a necklace inscribed with the name of an island. 

Elettra buys a one-way ticket to that island, just off the coast of Sardinia. Once there, she discovers a community of women, each lost in their own way, and eventually finds a way back to the past and herself. She also falls in love again: with friendship, baking and adventure.
