Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cara Segal is a born worrier. She figures her worrying works like a whisper in Gods ear - if Caras concerned about car crashes, kidnappings, or murders, she lets God know, and he always

spares her. But Cara never thought to worry about a fire. And one night while shes sleeping at a friends house, her house catches fire, and her mother and younger sister are both killed.

Throughout shiva, the initial Jewish mourning period, Cara cant help wondering about Gods role in the tragedy. And what is her fathers role in her life now? He walks around like a ghost

and refuses to talk about the fire. Cara longs for her family and her home, where sweet smells filled the house as Caras mom filled orders for her catering business, Julias Kitchen. Then one

day a call comes in for a cookie order, and Cara gets a wild idea. Maybe by bringing back Julias Kitchen, she can find a way to reconnect with everything shes lost.

Complete with a glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms and a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, this debut novel is a joyous tribute to the resiliency of the human spirit.
