    Emily and Jessamine Bach are opposites in every way: 28-year-old Emily is the CEO of Veritech; 23-year-old Jess is an environmental activist and graduate student in philosophy. Emily is making a fortune in Silicon Valley, Jess works in an antiquarian bookstore. The Cookbook Collector is a novel about getting and spending, and about the substitutions we make when we can’t find what we’re looking for. But above all, it is about holding on to what is real in a virtual world: love that stays.

    Freida says: "An engaging read"
    "Sweet and substantial!"
    Overall

    The Cookbook Collector was a delicious listen. Goodman draws an array of characters with tremendous empathy. The narrator plays the female parts convincingly, although she portrays the male characters with a more uniform voice.
