Hillary Manton Lodge's name may be familiar with you as she has written a couple of Amish fiction books that were light fun reads about Amish life from a little different perspective. A Table by the Window by Hillary is not in that category at all. It is a lovely contemporary tale about a young lady in search of love and her place in the world.

Her grandmother came to America after her husband died and opens are pastry shop that only offers the finest of the delicate treats. Juliette's parents own and run one of the finest French-Italian restaurants in town. So to say she knows food is probably an understatement.
In a delightful mix of story and appetizing recipes, Hillary weaves a story that will leave you wanting to join the nearest cooking class to learn how to make all those wonderful recipes that Juliette and her family talk about.
