The Bridges of Madison County meets Sleepless in Seattle. A lonely British woman’s letter to a successful American author sparks a relationship that changes both their lives.

When Eve Petworth writes to Jackson Cooper to praise a scene in one of his books, they discover a mutual love of cookery and food. Their friendship blossoms against the backdrop of Jackson’s colorful but ultimately unsatisfying love life and Eve’s tense relationship with her soon-to-be married daughter. As each of them offers, from behind the veils of semi-anonymity and distance, wise and increasingly affectionate counsel to the other, they both begin to confront their problems and plan a celebratory meeting in Paris—a meeting that Eve fears can never happen.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Almost every page offers delicious, offbeat descriptions…Whereas some weak-kneed…characters might test our patience, we’re always on Eve’s side. She’s self-aware, her own best critic, in search of coping mechanisms and peace.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A charming and quick read…The pair’s platonic relationship is comforting and reliably innocent, yet their discussion of food and love is wonderfully sensory.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Readers will appreciate the way McKinlay captures emotional truths.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “British novelist McKinlay offers a not-quite love affair through letters and emails between a wildly successful American writer and a lonely, well-to-do British woman.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A delicately wrought tale of longing and loss…Deborah MeKinlay’s beautiful language and superbly drawn characters enchant on every level. The ending stopped my breath.”

    Beatriz Williams, author of A Hundred Summers
