Banana Heart Summer by Merlinda Bobis
Banana Heart Summer

CAP, June 20, 2009

This is a delicious, wise, funny, warm, glorious and heartbreaking story of a young girl, her street, family and neighbors. Delicious Phillipine recipes are woven seamlessly into the everyday life of a girl whose family is poor and hungry. Food is the focus point for her and her siblings. The heroine is strong, resilent and focused on cooking local foods.
I read this book twice. The second reading was even
more delectable....this is a book to savor. Merlinda Bobis is a poet and wise woman. Banana Heart Summer was my favorite book of 2008.
