An emotional, heartwarming story from New York Times best-selling author Elin Hilderbrand about a grieving family that finds solace where they least expect it.
Celebrity chef Deacon Thorpe has always been a force of nature with an insatiable appetite for life. But after that appetite contributes to Deacon's shocking death in his favorite place on earth, a ramshackle Nantucket summer cottage, his (messy, complicated) family is reeling. Now Deacon's three wives, his children, and his best friend gather on the island he loved to say farewell.
The three very different women have long been bitter rivals, each wanting to claim the primary place in Deacon's life and his heart. But as they slowly let go of the resentments they've held on to for years and remember the good times, secrets are revealed, confidences are shared, and improbable bonds are formed as this unlikely family says good-bye to the man who brought them all together, for better or worse - and the women he loved find new ways to love again.

This was an amazing book! Laurel, Belinda and Scarlett, all wives of chef Deacon Thorp shared one man but each led a different life with him. Each character in this story is served up like a multi course meal for us. I loved this book and really enjoyed the narration as well! Elin you keep me entertained❣
Great character development as usual from Hilderband. Interesting story. Took me out of my element a bit with the characteristics of Deacon, which I loved.
Yes..especially to the ones with dysfunctional families.
The narrartor was fantastic.
Everything. Great Job.
Listening to recipes was not for me and I didn't enjoy that part.
Just loved listening while working out. Great narration. Got caught up in the characters right away and wanted to listen straight through. One of Hilderbrand's better books.
Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
A nice story that feels good even tho it centres around a death. Very descriptive characters that are believable and relatable. I enjoyed the side stories of each individual relationship and the narrator did an excellent job.
