I loved this book, really loved it. The aftermath of the genocide in Rwanda is multilayered, and this book offers a fascinating view. The characters were wonderful and the profundity of their experiences sneeks up on the reader in a beautiful way. Highly recommended for anyone interested in modern Africa, but might like to see it through a fictional lens.

This charming tale will remind you of The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency. Here the main character uses her wit, compassion, and extraordinary cakes to save the day in a variety of amusing and sometimes difficult situations in Rwanda.
