Product description

Review

"extremely engaging novel ... fictionalises its fascinating historical sources so successfully that it reads like the work of a veteran storyteller. Her career as a screenwriter and producer is probably responsible for that, as for the cinematic quality of this entertaining book." (Sydney Morning Herald)

"Despite the backdrop of WWII, Beecham keeps the tone light and serves up a sliver of romance and dollops of heart-warming hope. She also - deftly and subtly - educates readers about that time in our history." (Sunshine Coast Daily)

"Sometimes when I start a book it feels like I’m shaking hands with an old friend, or sitting by the fire sipping a glass of red wine. It’s how you know you are in the hands of an excellent storyteller, that feeling of complete ease with the unfolding scene. MAGGIE’S KITCHEN is that kind of book. It welcomes you in, and you are pleased to make its acquaintance." (Melissa Sargent, Love That Book Blog)

"presents the touching story of Maggie Johnson while highlighting in intricate detail the tumultuous and precarious times of WWII in London ...Maggie’s Kitchen is a tale of love, courage, and the restorative power of food." (AUSROM TODAY)

From the Back Cover

Amid the heartbreak and danger of London in the Blitz of WWII, Maggie Johnson finds her courage in friendship and food.

Family secrets, poignancy, humour and a love story. When the British Ministry of Food urgently calls for the opening of restaurants to feed tired and hungry Londoners during WWII, Maggie Johnson seems close to realising a long-held dream.

Navigating a continuous tangle of government red-tape, Maggie's Kitchen finally opens its doors to the public and Maggie finds that she has a most unexpected problem.She simply can't find enough food to keep up with demand for meals.

Then Maggie takes twelve-year-old Robbie, a street urchin, under her wing and through him is introduced to a dashing Polish refugee, digging for victory on London's allotments. Between them they will have to break the rules in order to put food on the table...
