The wakes

Yarwood, Dianne2024
This is a story about Clare, Louisa and Chris. And sometimes Paul, and less often, Beth. It is most certainly not about frittatas (a terrible concession), and more to do with lemon tart (a perfect contrast of textures). It's about what happens when your husband tells you that he doesn't love you anymore, or when your wife leaves you after too many rounds of IVF. It's about helping your new friend with her funeral catering business, and discovering that, sometimes, the most unlikely pairings are the best. It's about food that is outrageously good and comforting to sad people. And, for once, not being sensible, and throwing away everything you thought you knew. Catering, like life, doesn't always go according to plan, and as Clare, Louisa and Chris's stories become more intertwined, they learn that life will always manage to break in to remind you of just how good it can be.
