  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1
    This is a love story that starts not at the beginning but the end, with the death of actor and TED speaker Locke's husband, and it is her mesmerizing grief that pulls readers in. As a student at Wesleyan, Locke, from Houston, Texas, met Saro, a chef from Sicily nearly a dozen years older than she, while on a study-abroad adventure, and they fell in love. As she recounts with pleasure and sorrow, she was attracted to Saro because he had a gift for feeding not only people's bodies but also their spirits. After the chef moves to Los Angeles, they marry. His parents initially shun Locke, strongly objecting to their son marrying an African American and an actress; they even refuse to attend their wedding. Locke and Saro have a daughter and conduct successful careers, and finally the families are brought together by the tragedy of Saro's cancer. Readers will not want to put Locke's memoir down, so compellingly does she describe her unique experiences and the universal ups and downs of life. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
